For his important contribution to the understanding of ion behavior in supercapacitors, Dr. Christian Prehal was awarded with the Fonda-Fasella prize.
On the occasion of this year's Nobel Prizes there will be two lectures held on 14.12.2017. The lectures will be given in German.
Prof. Dr. Peter C. Aichelburg (Fakultät für Physik, Gravitationsphysik, Universität Wien):
„Gravitationswellen: In 100 Jahren von der Theorie zur Beobachtung“
Der Nobelpreis für Physik 2017 geht an die drei US-Forscher Rainer Weiss, Barry Barish und Kip Thorne für den ersten direkten Nachweis im All entstehender Gravitationswellen.
Prof. Dr. Ferdinand Hofer (Institut für Elektronenmikroskopie und Nanoanalytik, Technische Universität Graz):
„Kryo-Elektronenmikroskopie: Hochauflösende Struktur-untersuchungen an Biomolekülen und Biomaterialien“
Der Nobelpreis für Chemie 2017 geht an die drei Wissenschaftler Joachim Frank (USA), Richard Henderson (UK)...
Watch the online lecture about the use of X-ray scattering (SAXS/WAXS) on Nanostructures
A research Team from the MU Leoben (Schmidt Institute of Material Physics and Institute of Physics) and Infineon Technologies Austria AG published a paper on "Stress Gradients in Semiconductor Heterostructures" in Applied Physics Letters (APL)
Two research teams from the Laboratory for Nanoelectronics (ETH Zurich) and the Institute of Physics (MU Leoben) revealed the atomistic structure and shape of graded core/shell nanocrystals.
Scientists from Germany, Israel and Austria have demonstrated for the first time the growth of cotton fibers with integrated fluorescence or magnetism. Physicists from the Institute of Physics at MU Leoben confirmed with X-ray scattering that these functionalities are directly incorporated into the cellulose fibers.
Recently published article in Scientific Reports reveals that the integer charge transfer is the main mechanism behind the band alignment at the interface between graphene and organic semiconductors.
Scientists from 6 different countries (including scientists form the Chair of Functional Materials and Materials Systems and the Institute of Physics; MU Leoben) investigated the use of nanoporous activated carbon cloth as a material for hydrogen adsorption, selective gas separation and electrochemical energy storage was investigated.
In a new paper published in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces we reveal the impact of micropores on the swelling behavior of carbon based supercapacitor electrodes.
A detailed technical description of the recently published in situ SAXS and atomistic modeling approach is given in this paper. In addition an alternative strategy to derive pore size distributions from ex situ SAXS measurements and novel aspects regarding ion kinetics in nanoporous carbon supercapacitors are presented.
