    Würzburger Physiker haben die Spin-Architektur einer Halbleiteroberfläche bestimmt. Dazu wurden die Elektronen durch Lichtanregung aus dem Material herausgelöst, so dass ihre Spin-Orientierung vermessen werden konnte. Grafik: Philipp Höpfner

    New findings on the spin of electrons: In a recent publication, physicists of the University of Würzburg describe the spin architecture of an ultra-thin metal layer on a semiconductor for the first time. This represents yet another step towards high-performing super computers.

    Blasenkrebs: Gewebsschnitt unter dem Mikroskop

    Researchers of the Universities of Würzburg and Freiburg have identified a marker which indicates with high reliability whether a person suffers from bladder cancer. The patent application is pending; the Bavarian Patent Alliance ("Bayerische Patentallianz GmbH") is currently looking for pharmaceutical companies interested in obtaining a license.
