► High-speed for battery cell production
Lithium-ion battery cells consist to a large extent of electrodes, which must lie neatly on top of each other. A process developed at TU Braunschweig, for which a patent application has been filed, now ensures precise, damage-free as well as cost-effective and fast series production.
► Literal team-building
The Institute of Semiconductor Technology is upgrading the infrastructure at LENA with a MicroPhotonicsLab. Funding from the EU and the state is flowing into equipment with which the various working groups can fuse their quantum computer components on a chip.
► Off to new shores
… as a First Generation Student was the motto for Prof. Markus Henke, Institute for Electrical Machines, Traction and Drives, after his vocational training. He was the first in his family to take the step to study. In the Role Models project, he reports on his experiences.
► Collaborative project Climate Change and Early Man
… is intended to gain new insights using new methods. It is funded by the Volkswagen Foundation with 1.6 million euros. Prof. Antje Schwalb’s team from the Institute for Geosystems and Bioindication is involved.
► Spice with a healing effect
Oregano makes people happy and insects too! In addition to its function as a spice, the herb has numerous positive effects on humans and the environment. Anyone who wants to convince themselves of this can do so by taking a look at our picture of the month or by visiting the medical plant garden.
► Darling of the week
Issues of climate protection and urban and transport planning – our darling of the week offers many possibilities. The city of Braunschweig has published a 3D city model that provides information such as building height, roof area and shadows cast and can be used to assess urban developments. We took a look right away: Our Forum building is 27.4 m high and has a roof area of 1092.8 m2.
