Welche Studiengänge bietet das Leopold Mozart College of Music (LMC) an? Wie fühlt es sich an, inmitten von internationalen Studierenden und Lehrenden am LMC zu studieren? Und welche konkreten beruflichen Perspektiven eröffnet ein Studium am LMC? Antworten auf diese und viele weitere Fragen erhalten Studieninteressierte beim Informationstag am 1. März 2024.
Scientia et Conscientia
Physicists from the University of Augsburg succeeded to distinguish chiral orders with similar magnetization but opposite sense of rotation through electrical measurements at low temperatures. This is relevant for fundamental research on complex magnets and with respect to possible applications for magnetic data storage. The results were published in the renowned journal Nature Physics.
Dr Aisha Aqeel has been awarded funding from the German Research Foundation (DFG) for the development of a Emmy Noether Junior Research Group on “Spintronics with chiral helimagnetic insulators” at the University of Augsburg. Aqeel and her research team will focus on the development of unconventional magnetic systems, referred to as helimagnets, and the optimisation of these systems for energy efficient spintronic applications.
Many cancer patients develop severe dermatitis during radiotherapy. Which factors increase the risk of such radiodermatitis has only been partially understood up until now. A pilot study at the University of Augsburg, the Technical University of Munich (TUM), and Helmholtz Munich now points to the important role played by skin bacteria. Breast cancer patients whose skin flora was severely disturbed all developed severe dermatitis during radiotherapy. The results give hope of a test that is able to provide early identification of at-risk groups. The results have been published in the renowned medical journal JAMA Oncology.
Researchers at the University of Augsburg and the University of Vienna have discovered co-existing magnetic skyrmions and antiskyrmions of arbitrary topological charge at room temperature in magnetic Co/Ni multilayer thin films. Their findings have been published in the renowned journal Nature Physics and open up the possibility for a new paradigm in skyrmionics research. The discovery of novel spin objects with arbitrary topological charge promises to contribute to advances in fundamental and applied research, particularly through their application in information storage devices.
In this second episode of the University of Augsburg’s research to go podcast series, literary scholar Anna Kathrin Bleuler explains her research on literature from the Middle Ages and the different perspectives it offers for viewing the present.
The “AnglistenTheater” at the University of Augsburg will perform two plays – “Escaped Alone” and “Here We Go” – from the British playwright Caryl Churchill for its winter production. Both plays will be performed in English on the 7th, 8th, 12th and 14th of December at 8 pm in theatre II (Building C – Großes Hörsaalzentrum). Tickets cost €10 or €5 (concession) and can be purchased from Tuesday the 28th of November at “Taschenbuchladen Krüger” (near Königsplatz).
Prof. Dr Malte Peter, professor of applied analysis at the University of Augsburg, has been named a life member of Clare Hall, one of 31 colleges of the University of Cambridge.
As the year draws to a close, I would like to take the opportunity to warmly thank all members of the University of Augsburg – our students and employees as well as professors – for their excellent work and cooperation.
Five researchers from the University of Augsburg are participating in the UN climate conference held in Dubai from the 30th of November to the 12th of December and will be available for media interviews.
As a welcome to the new semester, the Leopold Mozart College of Music will be holding a concert on the 18th of October in the Golden Hall of the Augsburg Town Hall. It also invites members of the university and broader community to its open day at the Grottenau on the 21st of October.
