Dear reader,

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

Electromagnetic sensors meet biomedicine
They can already open doors, park cars and monitor fill levels. Is there any reason why electromagnetic sensors couldn‘t also detect molecules, examine cells or treat tumours? ESSENCE, a nationwide German priority programme, is exploring this issue through a series of ten sub-projects.

More efficiency, less pollutant emission
Clear objectives: 90% less nitrogen oxide and 75% less CO² in the air. Aircraft engines must become more efficient and eco-friendly. This will only happen with new combustion technologies and a vastly improved, advanced turbine design. TU Darmstadt and Rolls-Royce are investigating how the combustion chamber and turbine can be optimised jointly in the “Combustor and Turbine Aerothermal Interaction“ research centre.

The development of aircraft engines will not work without new methods of simulation. The Department of Energy and Power Plant Technology at TU Darmstadt shows how numerical modelling can help.

The agility to succeed in the digital future
Digitalisation and demographic change pose real challenges for business. TU Darmstadt is researching how companies can prepare for the future.
