Dear reader,

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

The secret language of the internet
What happens when we access a website? In the Software Lab of the Technical University of Darmstadt, researchers are looking for errors in the programs running unnoticed in the background. Their aim is to make the internet more secure and reliable.

Turbo for the broadband network
Installing new optical fibres is expensive. So network operators want to make better use of their existing capacities. A new type of laser diode from Darmstadt could help. It has now been put into practice with the industry.

It doesn’t always have to be platinum
Junior Professor Ulrike Kramm develops catalysts for fuel cells. They are modelled on nature and are similar to haemoglobin.

The precarius care market
Care work in German families is increasingly being taken over by female migrantworkers. Their precarious situation is now analysed in an industrial and organisational sociology study from TU Darmstadt.
