Research Magazine "future"

Issue 2022


Main Topic: Matter and Quantum Systems

The focus of our new magazine is the latest cutting-edge research in the field of "Matter and Quantum Systems" at the University of Siegen. We provide insights into the mysterious world of ultra-tiny particles. GPS, smartphones, satellites, superconductors, TV sets – without quantum physics, none of these would be possible as we know them today.

Topics in the magazine include:

Selection of topics:

  • Complex Computing with Quanta (p. 12)
  • The Particle Catchers (p. 32)
  • Third-Generation Elementary Particles (p. 42)
  • On the Way to the Quantum Internet (p. 56)

We also present a broad research mix from our faculties, among others:

  • Achieving More Sustainability with »Pleasurable Troublemakers« (p. 60)
  • Fact Check: »National Socialism memorials provide educational opportunities, even for elementary school children« (p. 64)
  • Shedding New Light on Viruses (p. 79)

Basic data

Publication frequency: once yearly since summer 2019
No. of copies: 5,000 (issues 2019, 2020); 4,000 (issue 2021, 2022) 

When printing the research magazine, we only use wood that comes from responsible forestry. We print climate neutrally and support important environmental projects. 2022 we donate to the Freiburg city forest. In 2021, we support a mountain forest and climate project in the Allgäu region (Germany). For the 2020 issue, we donated money to the climate protection project at Virunga National Park in the D.R. Congo to protect the habitat of mountain gorrilas. For the 2019 edition, we financially supported regional projects in the Harz Mountains, Germany.

All topics are discussed or determined together with the Research and Young Scientific Academics Commission, the Research Funding Unit and Prof. Dr. Thomas Mannel, the Prorector for Research and Junior Scientists. The main requirement for the decision is that it is cutting-edge research that is future-oriented.
