Collection area: Technical and Scientific Principles

The "basic sciences of technology" have formed the foundation of the collections since the museum was founded. The long-term, predominant image of technology as an applied science has since given way to a more complex idea of the origins and applications of technology. Astronomy, physics and chemistry help us to understand the macrocosmic and microcosmic structure of the world.

Physical/Chemical Fundamentals
  • 1405_Armillarsphäre_TMW

    Armillarsphäre, um 1850

    Unfortunately this article is only available in German.

  • FA-123588

    DSM 940 electron microscope

    The electron microscope can do what the light-optical microscope doesn’t achieve. This device allows magnifications up to 200,000 times.

  • FA-121724

    Laser vibrometry system

    Acoustic oscillations and vibrations can only rarely be seen with the naked eye. However, they can be made visible using a measuring device and a computer.

  • FA-123653

    Mass spectrometer

    Can you "weigh" atoms? It is not possible by using scales. However, with a mass spectrometer, you can even separate particles of different "weights".

  • FA-103194_Brahe-Sextant

    Sextant

    Sextants are devices for measuring angles. They are used to determine the position of stars and (as small, manual devices) for determining one's position at sea.
