The universities in Twente and Münster have maintained a close partnership for many years. Both universities work together in numerous areas. In addition to research cooperation and joint study programmes, both universities also offer regular exchanges for students and staff. The two university managements are now going one step further: they want to deepen their strategic partnership and identify opportunities for further cooperation and strengthen the existing research alliances.

Physicists couple key components of quantum technologies

Quantum effects are genuinely found in the world of nanostructures and allow a wide variety of new technological applications. For example, a quantum computer could in the future solve problems, which conventional computers need a lot of time to handle. All over the world, researchers are engaged in intensive work on the individual components of quantum technologies – these include circuits that process information using single photons instead of electricity, as well as light sources producing such individual quanta of light. Coupling these two components to produce integrated quantum optical circuits on chips presents a particular challenge.

Von überragenden Forschern lernen

Doktorand Christian Schwermann trifft auf 39 Nobelpreisträger – zwei Physiker der WWU bei Tagung in Lindau
© Lisa Luks

Seit 68 Jahren bringt die Lindauer Nobelpreisträgertagung erfolgreiche Wissenschaftler und Nachwuchsforscher zusammen. In diesem Jahr ist die Tagung der Physik gewidmet. Vom 30. Juni bis 5. Juli treffen 39 Nobelpreisträger am Bodensee auf 580 exzellente Studierende, Doktoranden und PostDocs unter 35 Jahren aus 89 Ländern. In einem mehrstufigen internationalen Auswahlverfahren haben auch zwei junge Physiker der WWU Münster überzeugt. In dieser Ausgabe der wissen|leben schildert Christian Schwermann seine Erwartungen.
