Great turnout at March for Science Göttingen


Roughly 1,500 people took part in the March for Science in Göttingen on Saturday, among them numerous scientists from the institutions at the Göttingen Campus, Lower Saxony's Minister of Science, Dr. Gabriele Heinen-Kljajić, as well as members of the Presidential Board and the Senate of the University. By doing so, they stood up for free and open science and research as a vital democratic value. more...

ERC funds project by physicist Professor Sarah Köster


The research of Professor Sarah Köster at Göttingen University's Institute for X-Ray Physics deals with the physics of biological cells and cellular components. The European Research Council (ERC) has awarded her a Consolidator Grant. Her project funded with over € 2.4 million starts in May 2017. more...

Oscillating molecules from ultra-short laser pulses


Usually, two light beams will cross each other without any fanfare. That buzzing hum of clashing lightsabers is merely a cinematic sound effect. Inside a laser, however, intensive light pulses can indeed mutually attract or reject each other. A team of researchers from Göttingen University and the University of California, Los Angeles have now succeeded in tracking such rapid "duels” between two pulses in real-time. more...

The nose ignores interruptions

Odor monitoring, for example in the food industry, normally occurs in a quiet test setting, for it is assumed that extraneous noise can influence test results. Researchers at the University of Göttingen have discovered that such concerns are unwarranted: Noise has but very limited effect on the perceptive abilities of the human nose. more...
