    System of two superposed liquid films could simplifiy fabrication of microlenses

    If a system of two superposed liquid films is exposed to a temperature gradient normal to the films, the upper layer exhibits convection cells which deform the lower thin film in an identical pattern. The principle could find applications in fabricating regular, highly ordered surface structures.

    1st Interdisciplinarity Day : Insights into research

    January 28, 2016, Karo 5 (City Center) and Hörsaal- und Medienzentrum (Lichtwiese)

    Interdisciplinarity characterizes the academic routine in many different shapes and is an essential element in the conception of the TU Darmstadt. For the first time, an “Interdisciplinary Day” on January 28th 2016 will express this fact to the public.
