Dear reader,

in the current issue of hoch³ FORSCHEN – the science quarterly – you´ll find the following topics:

Navigating the energy system transformation
How can policymakers better coordinate the energy system transformation and get citizens more effectively involved? An analysis and recommendation by Michèle Knodt, Professor of Political Science at TU Darmstadt.

Pause button for light particle
Researchers at TU Darmstadt halt individual photons and can release them at the push of a button. The tool could be used for bug-proof communications, for example, or for something that was previously impossible.

Fewer stumbling blocks
Human movement when stumbling is manifold – and remarkably misunderstood. TU motion scientist have come to a well-founded conclusion that could even help robots to maintain balance.

Nanomembranes as virus filters
Researchers in materials science, led by Professor Wolfgang Ensinger, are developing plastic membranes with nanopores. Now they are experimenting to establish whether the thin films are suitable as air filters in the fight against coronaviruses.
