It was the scientific breakthrough of 2016: The international LIGO-experiment had detected the long sought gravitational waves. Now the LIGO-team reported another confirmed detection. And this time, the Dark Energy Survey – in which LMU researchers play a prominent role – has succeeded in photographing the source’s optical counterpart. more

Simulations performed by LMU biophysicists, in which both environmental and demographic fluctuations were modeled for the first time, indicate that cooperative interactions favor the survival of bacterial populations in variable habitats. more

Munich Scientists, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen. more
