Dear reader,

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

Striking the right note

How can acoustic challenges be mastered so that unwanted sound is minimised while a desired sound environment in each particular situation is also generated at the same time? Researchers at TU Darmstadt are working on new methods and processes to help shape the acoustic properties of machines during their development.

Electricity from nanochannels

Our world produces heat around the clock – through the operation of smartphones, heating systems, servers and factories. In the field of nanotechnology, a team of researchers at TU Darmstadt is finding a way to better utilize this heat for the generation of electricity and thus making a contribution to sustainability.

New dimensions in quantum physics

Theoretical physicist Vladimir M. Stojanović took a circuitous route to his research on quantum computers. He is now presenting findings that could provide decisive impetus to this field of research.

Not without the poison dart frog

A research group headed by Professor Nico Blüthgen at TU Darmstadt is investigating how nature returns to recovering rainforest. The comeback of key species and interactions indicates successful regeneration.
