  • West African Wild Silks Techniques: Preserving Marka-Dafing’s Heritage of Knowledge

    Schäffner, Wolfgang, Prof. Dr. (Cluster of Excellence 'Matters of Activity')

    Duration of Project: 02/2020 - 07/2022

    Financer: Sonstige internationale öffentliche Mittelgeber

    For centuries, indigenous wild silks have been traded across West Africa and used in Marka-Dafing’s textile production in the Mouhoun regions of Western Burkina Faso. Over the past twenty years, the precious materials that are used by women for weavi ...

  • Urban Climate in Transition, Module B (Evaluation of Urban Climate Models, 3DO) – SP 02: Urban Mobile Measurement Systems and GIS-Integration (URBMOBI-GIS)

    Schneider, Christoph, Prof. Dr. (Climate Geography)

    Duration of Project: 06/2016 - 12/2019

    Financer: BMBF

    The Research Programme „Urban Climate under Change“ intends to develop an innovative urban climate model that is able to simulate micro-scale atmospheric processes for entire cities like Stuttgart or Berlin using grid spacings that resolve buildings, ...

  • Tuning the Electronic Structure of Organic/Metal Contacts via Additive Interfacial Segregation

    Koch, Norbert, Prof. Dr. techn. (Structure, Dynamics and electronic Properties of Molecular Systems)

    Duration of Project: 01/2015 - 12/2017

    Financer: German Israel Foundation

    All organic-based devices, i.e., “organic electronics”, require good electrical contacts between the organic semiconductor and an electrode, most commonly a metal. It has been established early-on that the nature of the metal/organic electrical conta ...

  • Top-quark physics at colliders

    Uwer, Peter, Prof. Dr. rer. nat. (Theoretical Physics / Phenomenology of Elementary Particles beyond the Standard Model)

    Duration of Project: 01/2009 - 12/2014

    Financer: DFG: Sonderforschungsbereich - Beteiligungen

    The top-quark, the heaviest known elementary particle, is an excellent probe of the fundamental interactions at (sub)attometer distances. Theoretical investigations of the production and decay of these quarks are essential for the analysis of the cor ...

  • Topoclimatic forcing and non-linear dynamics in the climate change adaption of glaciers in High Asia

    Loibl, David, Dr. (Climate Geography)

    Duration of Project: 01/2018 - 03/2021

    Financer: DFG: Eigene Stelle (Sachbeihilfe)

    Glaciers in High Asia, a substantial resource of water supply for more than a billion people, are known to react highly heterogeneous to climate change. However, spatial patterns, forcing mechanisms, and sensitivities underlying this heterogeneity ar ...

  • Hostert, Patrick, Prof. Dr. (Geomatics)

    Duration of Project: 03/2015 - 03/2017

    Financer: Sonstige internationale öffentliche Mittelgeber

    Quality and quantity of current high-resolution optical Earth observation data is unprecedented and provides an opportunity to advance remote sensing-based land systems analyses. However, cloud coverage and a lack of gridded higher-level products sti ...

  • Syzygien and Moduli

    Farkas, Gavril, Prof. Dr. (Algebraic Geometry I)

    Duration of Project: 05/2018 - 09/2021

    Financer: DFG: Sachbeihilfe

    The salient feature characterizing all the projects of the proposal is a variational approach to syzygies. There are two major sets of goals : On one side, find an answer to some of the outstanding questions on syzygies of algebraic curves: The Prym- ...

  • Synthesis of Functional Organic Nanotubes As Building Blocks for Bottom-Up Nanofabrication

    Hecht, Stefan, Prof. (Organic Chemistry and Functional Materials)

    Duration of Project: 10/2006 - 06/2007

    Financer: DFG: Sachbeihilfe

    In order to provide a chemical contribution to the multidisciplinary nanoscience effort, a synthetic approach has been developed to generate key building blocks for the bottom-up approach to device miniaturization. On the basis of helically folding p ...

  • Superdiversity in the ageing city? The convergence of increasing multiethnicity and an ageing population.

    Lakes, Tobia, Prof. Dr. (Applied GIScience)

    Duration of Project: 03/2017 - 02/2020

    Financer: DFG: Sachbeihilfe

    European societies are increasingly both ageing and diverse societies. Through processes of immigration and demographic change, the population composition will modify fundamentally in the next decades. Especially metropolitan areas are the geographic ...

  • Superdiversity in the ageing city? The convergence of increasing multiethnicity and an ageing population

    Haase, Dagmar, Prof. Dr. (Landscape Ecology and Biogeography)

    Duration of Project: 03/2017 - 02/2020

    Financer: DFG: Sachbeihilfe

    European societies are increasingly both ageing and diverse societies. Through processes of immigration and demographic change, the population composition will modify fundamentally in the next decades. Especially metropolitan areas are the geographic ...
