Current Scientific News and Reports of the OePG

Due to the rising cost of printing and distribution, the publication of the OePG's periodical <Physik|AT> had to be discontinued by the end of 2010. This page contains current scientific news and reports that previously would have been published in the periodical. After a certain period, currently one year, older contributions are moved to the Archive of the Scientific News and Contributions of the OePG, where they will remain for an unlimited time.

You can find more current scientific contributions and reports at the website of Europhysics News, which is freely accessible.
