Extremely long and incredibly cold


While researching the wave properties of atoms, one of the "theoretically" coldest places in the universe has been created for a few seconds at ZARM, University of Bremen. The temperature record near absolute zero cannot be...more

Open6GHub – University of Bremen Conducts Research on Next Generation Wireless Communication


Extremely fast, energy-efficient, fail-safe – and extremely complex: The German government is funding research on the next generation 6G wireless systems with up to 250 million euros. University of Bremen experts play a key role...more

The picture shows the experimentally measured against statistically modelled thermal conductivity for different materials. The data deviate from the statistical ideal line (black line), whereby the grey area marks a 10 percent deviation in each direction.

Are nanofluids as smart as we think?


ZARM paper in the Proceedings Royal Society A shows that the potential applications of nanofluids need to be tested on a broader and more detailed scale.more

Brand new findings on fire safety in space


The fire safety experiment on CYGNUS has results that even the combustion researchers could not have predicted: in weightlessness, a flame tends to spread in the opposite direction to the air flow. more
