    Introducing: Dr. Michele Campopiano

    Dr. Michele Campopiano is researching the management of water resources in the Po and Rhine River areas, focusing in particular on the period between the consolidation of urban autonomies and local authorities and the rise of dynastic states from the end of the 13th to the mid-16th centuries. He is a guest of Professor Dr. Gerrit Jasper Schenk at the Department of History and Social Sciences.

    Electrical engineers at the TU developed design as part of international collaboration

    Electrical engineers in the accelerator physics group at TU Darmstadt have developed a design for a laser-driven electron accelerator so small it could be produced on a silicon chip. It would be inexpensive and with multiple applications. The design, which has been published in Physical Review Letters, is now being realised as part of an international collaboration.

    Researchers develop magnetic cooling cycle

    As a result of climate change, population growth, and rising expectations regarding quality of life, energy requirements for cooling processes are growing much faster worldwide than for heating. Another problem that besets today's refrigeration systems is that most coolants cause environmental and health damage. A novel technology could provide a solution: refrigeration using magnetic materials in magnetic fields.
