The Collaborative Research Centre Transregio “Strongly Interacting Matter under Extreme Conditions”, a joint initiative of the Technical University of Darmstadt, Goethe University Frankfurt and Bielefeld University, has been investigating the most extreme states of matter found in the universe since July 2017. Now the German Research Foundation (DFG) is funding this Transregio (SFB-TRR) 211 for another four years with 8.9 million euros. The new spokesperson is Professor Guy Moore, nuclear physicist at TU Darmstadt. He takes over this function from Professor Dirk Rischke, who researches and teaches at Goethe University Frankfurt. The Transregio also strengthens the cooperation within the Strategic Alliance of Rhine-Main Universities (RMU), which Goethe University Frankfurt, TU Darmstadt, and Johann Gutenberg University Mainz formed in 2015.

  • Ultra-sensitive radio images reveal thousands of star-forming galaxies in the early Universe
    The LOFAR Surveys Key Science Project, including Dr. Thilo Siewert and Prof. Dominik Schwarz from Bielefeld University, has released the first data of their deep observations of the radio sky. A special volume of Astronomy and Astrophysics presents 14 scientific articles based on the deepest obserservations of low radio frequencies so far.

    Dr. Thilo Siewert and Prof. Dominik Schwarz from the Faculty of Physics contributed to the so-called differential number counts, which reveal that the observed objects are largely so-called star forming galaxies, and to the measurement of the brightness temperature of the sky due to extragalactic point sources. It has been shown that extra-galactic point sources cannot be held responsible for an excess radiation that has been found by the ARCADE-2 experiment.

  • Research team demonstrates control mechanism for quantum material


    How can large amounts of data be transferred or processed as quickly as possible? One key to this could be graphene. The ultra-thin material is only one atomic layer thick, and the electrons it contains have very special properties due to quantum effects. It could therefore be very well suited for use in high-performance electronic components. Up to this point, however, there has been a lack of knowledge about how to suitably control certain properties of graphene. A new study by a team of scientists from Bielefeld and Berlin, together with researchers from other research institutes in Germany and Spain, is changing this. The team’s findings have been published in the journal Science Advances.

  • Bielefeld researchers provide 3D images of coronaviruses
