The University of Konstanz (German: Universität Konstanz) is a university in the city of Konstanz in Baden-Württemberg, Germany. It was founded in 1966, and the main campus on the Gießberg was opened in 1972. As one of nine German Excellence Universities today University of Konstanz is counted among Germany's most prestigious institutions of higher learning. The University, situated on the shore of Lake Constance just four kilometers from the border with Switzerland, is consistently ranked among the top 200 Universities in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings (194th, as of 2011) . Over 10,000 students from close to 100 countries are enrolled at the university, while over 130 links to European partner universities and numerous exchange programmes facilitate global networking. All in all students can choose from more than 100 degree programs. It is particularly well known for its political science and law departments as well as for its mathematics, computer science, biology and psychology programmes. The sports programme at Konstanz University is among the best nationwide.

Studying the quantum vacuum: Traffic jam in empty space

An important step towards a completely new experimental access to quantum physics has been made at University of Konstanz. The team of scientists headed by Professor Alfred Leitenstorfer has now shown how to manipulate the ...

Supercomputers without waste heat

Generally speaking, magnetism and the lossless flow of electrical current ("superconductivity") are competing phenomena that cannot coexist in the same sample. However, for building supercomputers, synergetically combining ...

Is the outcome of evolution predictable?

If one would rewind the tape of life, would evolution result in the same outcome? The Harvard evolutionary biologist Stephen Jay Gould came up with this famous thought experiment. He suggested that evolution would not repeat ...

Shielded quantum bits

A theoretical concept to realize quantum information processing has been developed by Professor Guido Burkard and his team of physicists at the University of Konstanz. The researchers have found ways to shield electric and ...

Researchers successfully demonstrate a quantum gate in silicon

Milestone on the path to the quantum computer: Scientists of the University of Konstanz, Princeton University, and the University of Maryland have developed a stable quantum gate for two-quantum bit systems made of silicon. ...

Evolutionary split up without geographic barriers

A fundamental question in evolutionary research is: is a geographic barrier dividing the original population into two genetically separated populations required for the origin of new species? Or is so-called sympatric speciation ...
