On 26 March, the European Parliament votes on the EU Copyright Reform. Valentina Moscon and Reto M. Hilty have analyzed the legal consequences of the planned reform. In an interview, they explain why the planned directive misses its central objective
Talented German and foreign junior scientists are offered the opportunity to earn a doctorate under excellent research conditions. A shared characteristics of the graduate programmes at Max Planck Institutes is a close colloboration with universities.
In principle, almost any encryption key can be broken - all you need is the right computing power. The situation is different, however, with quantum cryptography. Gerd Leuchs is researching this encryption technology of the future.

“This is us with our lovely CyberMotion Simulator. This 8 degrees-of-freedom robotic arm is used to simulate car and helicopter dynamics. The end-effector of the robot is a cabin that can host a person. Inside the cabin, two projectors show high-resolution scenarios that surround the person sitting inside and create a realistic environment. Using advanced motion cueing algorithms, the CyberMotion Simulator provides high-fidelity simulations.
We use the simulator to investigate how we can make helicopters easy to fly by everyone. To achieve this goal, we conduct multiple human-in-the-loop experiments to test different control strategies, haptic systems and novel pilot training methodologies.”
This is a cryostat. It can cool down to 7 mK, only 0.007 degrees above absolute zero. Johannes Zirkelbach from Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light in Erlangen utilizes its power to research the interactions between light and matter by investigating single molecules embedded in a crystal.
