FAU has an excellent international reputation. This is reflected in the large number of renowned international researchers who choose FAU as their host university as part of a fellowship or research award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.
For the first time, FAU engineers have succeeded in producing complex crystal lattices, so-called clathrates, from nanoparticles using DNA strands. Their findings have recently been published in the acclaimed journal ‘Science’.
In a test reactor, FAU material researchers succeeded in producing the world’s largest diamond foil with a diameter of 28 centimetres.
