Showcases of research

Science and research are more present in public than they have been for a long time. More and more people want to know about the subjects science is working on and how the results can change their lives. The SHOWCASES OF RESEARCH at the Technischen Sammlungen Dresden will from now on present varying exhibitions on themes of the future. Visitors can experience current research and discuss with scientists.


An exhibition in cooperation with the Cluster of Excellence ct.qmat – Complexity and Topology in Quantum Matter, Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research Dresden, Julius-Maximilians-Universität of Würzburg, Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden Rossendorf, dem Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids, Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems, and Bavarian Center for Applied Energy Research e.V.

Cluster of Excellence ct.qmat – Complexity and Topology in Quantum Matter

Quantum Matter – Advancing to New Dimensions

What will be used to build computers in the future? What are frustrated magnets? And what does a doughnut have to do with a whirlwind? Answers are given by researchers of the Cluster of Excellence ct.qmat. Under extreme conditions in high-performance labs in Dresden and Würzburg, the cluster examines the properties of new materials for superfast quantum chips that hardly consume energy and have gigantic storage capacities. For the exhibition in the SHOWCASES, scientists have developed seven interactive exhibits that decipher the mysterious phenomena of the quantum world.

Barkhausen Institut

Fast and secure on the Internet of Things

What exactly is the “Internet of Things”? How can I safeguard communication against manipulation and surveillance? What does latency mean in this context? Answers are given by researchers of the newly founded Barkhausen Institut, where scientists work on software, processors and transmission paths to make the Internet of Things more reliable and trustworthy. At issue are security and not least the protection of privacy, when in times to come robots, vehicles and household devices communicate autonomously over the Internet and collect, analyse and react to information from their surroundings independently. The presentation in the DISPLAY WINDOW introduces numerous applications of the Internet of Things via an interactive busy picture, challenging viewers to play table hockey against a robot and offering variegated information of the themes of IoT, mobile communications and security.
