Materials Research Says Yes to Wood

Green alternatives to fossil raw materials: Bio-based materials are expected to reduce pollution and drive the shift to a more sustainable economy

12-May-2021

As a renewable resource, wood offers great potential in the fight against the climate crisis. First, it sequesters large amounts of carbon (1 ton per cubic meter!). Moreover, it is an environmentally friendly alternative to fossil based resources, which cause the majority of greenhouse gas ...

Electric Vehicle Batteries: The older they get, the safer they are

Approval of EVBs for a second life

04-May-2021

Studies at TU Graz show that the older an traction battery of electric vehicles (EV) is, the lower the danger it poses. Now the researchers and industry partners want to define parameters for the subsequent use of discarded batteries. As part of the project "SafeBattery", a team from Graz ...

How acidic are atoms?

Precisely understand and improve chemical properties of surfaces

30-Apr-2021

The acidity of molecules can be easily determined, but until now it was not possible to measure this important property for atoms on a surface. With a new microscopy technique from the Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien), this has now been achieved. The degree of acidity or alkalinity of a ...

2D Nanomaterial MXene: the Perfect Lubricant

In extreme heat or in the vacuum of space: a novel nanomaterial delivers top performance in extreme situations

22-Apr-2021

You can lubricate a bicycle chain with oil, but what do you do with a Mars rover or a red-hot conveyor belt in the steel industry? Very special nanomaterials have now been studied by the TU Wien together with research groups from Saarbrücken (Germany), Purdue University in the USA and the ...

New catalyst for lower CO2 emissions

Converting carbon dioxide into other useful substances, such as synthetic fuels

22-Apr-2021

Which catalyst can be used to convert carbon dioxide into other substances? Scientists at TU Wien have now created a new material, which belongs to the class of perovskites. If the CO2 content of the atmosphere is not to increase any further, carbon dioxide must be converted into something else. ...

Understanding Interfaces of Hybrid Materials with Machine Learning

A design principle for the self-assembly of functionalized molecules devised

21-Apr-2021

Using machine learning methods, researchers at TU Graz can predict the structure formation of functionalized molecules at the interfaces of hybrid materials. Now they have also succeeded in looking behind the driving forces of this structure formation. The production of nanomaterials involves ...

The indestructible light beam

Researchers create special light waves that can penetrate even opaque materials as if the material was not even there

14-Apr-2021

Why is sugar not transparent? Because light that penetrates a piece of sugar is scattered, altered and deflected in a highly complicated way. However, as a research team from TU Wien (Vienna) and Utrecht University (Netherlands) has now been able to show, there is a class of very special light ...

Heat conduction record with tantalum nitride

"For the chip industry, tantalum nitride is a highly promising material"

07-Apr-2021

How can we remove heat from computer chips as fast as possible? At TU Wien, a metal compound has now been identified that is particularly well suited for this purpose. A thermos bottle has the task of preserving the temperature – but sometimes you want to achieve the opposite: Computer chips ...
