Bayerischer Rundfunk features MSS research

Science News channel “IQ-Wissenschaft und Forschung” of Bayerischer Rundfunk (BR2) reports on our recent results on the velocity distribution of active granular particles.

MSS-team performs parabolic flights.

A team of five MSS researchers works currently in Bordeaux to perform parabolic flights. Focus of the experiments are the dissipative properties of granular systems under conditions of microgravity. Further, they perform an educational experiment regaring gyroscopic stabilisation of objects in weightlessness.

Prof. Nikolai Brilliantov visits MSS

Prof. Brilliantov (University Leicester, UK) is one of the most recognized scientists in the field of Kinetic Theory and Statistical Mechanics of granular matter. He will visit MSS for one month to collaborate on phase transitions of systems of active granular particles.

Die Struktur von granularen Packungen in Virtual Reality erkunden

Moderne Verfahren, wie Computertomographie und numerische Simulationen, führen dazu, dass immer mehr Forschungsergebnisse aus dreidimensionalen Datensätzen bestehen. Der Lehrstuhl MSS zeigt in Zusammenarbeit mit der theoretischen Physik und der Nürnberger Firma Cykyria wie sich solche Datenmengen mit Hilfe von virtueller Realität anschaulich darstellen lassen.
