Combating hunger with artificial intelligence

In order to improve world food conditions, a team around computer science professor Kristian Kersting was inspired by the technology behind Google News.

Making composite material smart with precious metal

Doping polymer brushes with gold nanoparticles results in a switchable composite material which changes its thickness depending on the pH value. The research by physicists at the TU Darmstadt, published in the journal Soft ...

Scientists develop 3-D scanner for insects

A scanner developed jointly at TU Darmstadt and Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences enables automated digital archiving of preserved insects—in high-resolution and in 3-D. The scientists have published this new and ...

Decomposition of toxic products in drinking water infiltration

Israel has declared war against drought. Five desalination plants generate around 600 million cubic metres of fresh water every year, which is about 70 percent of the consumption required by private households. Because the ...

Solution to the hyperfine puzzle in reach

Last year, physicists at TU Darmstadt cast doubt on our current understanding of the interplay between electrons and atomic nuclei, and are now upping the ante by proposing a solution to this so-called "hyperfine puzzle." ...

Algorithms obtain the maximal amount of knowledge from images

Digital images and videos contain much more information than computers currently extract from them. With the help of intelligent algorithms, a research team led by Professor Stefan Roth aims to obtain the maximal amount of ...

Stop and go in the potassium channel

Cells need openings in the cell membrane in order to make exchanges with their environment. These openings are closable portals in which the signals are transported in the form of ions. Private lecturer Dr. Indra Schröder ...

Team researches thermal conductivity of cable bedding materials

The trouble-free operation of the energy distribution grid presents a challenge in the era of renewable energy sources. Researchers at TU Darmstadt demonstrate how grid operators can operate and expand underground cabling ...

Researchers report on cell-permeable nanobodies

Scientists at the Technische Universität Darmstadt, Ludwig Maximilians University (LMU) Munich and the Leibniz Institute for Molecular Pharmacology (FMP) have managed to introduce tiny antibodies into living cells. The researchers ...
