Scientists were able to observe and document the growth of hexagonal boron nitride for the first time
Atomically thin 2D materials for applications in microelectronics or nanotechnology are grown by breaking down gas on a hot metal surface. Due to the high temperatures and rapid transformation of the gas, it is extremely difficult to observe this process. Researchers from TU Graz have now joined ...
Andrea Hochegger, an analytical chemist at TU Graz, investigates whether foodstuffs can be tainted with harmful substances from packaging or during production
Andrea Hochegger’s current research focus is the question of contamination with mineral oil hydrocarbons. “We break up complex mixtures into MOSH and MOAH fractions,” Andrea explains. These are groups of chemical compounds found in mineral oil. MOSH stands for mineral oil saturated hydrocarbons ...
Even more sensitive than a human fingertip
The “smart skin” developed by Anna Maria Coclite is very similar to human skin. It senses pressure, humidity and temperature simultaneously and produces electronic signals. More sensitive robots or more intelligent prostheses are thus conceivable. The skin is the largest sensory organ and at the ...
Why do large gas bubbles in viscoelastic liquids rise so much faster than expected?
An open question with great relevance for industrial production processes. Researchers at TU Graz and TU Darmstadt have now found an explanation. It is a puzzle long known among experts and very relevant in many industrial production processes: a jump discontinuity in the rise velocity of gas ...
TU Graz and start-up Rouge H2 Engineering have scored a world's first in producing high-purity hydrogen from biogas directly at a biogas plant using a new chemical looping process
Green hydrogen is seen as a beacon of hope in the energy and mobility revolution, but it is not yet suitable for mass production. There are several reasons for this. Hydrogen is currently produced mainly centrally from fossil raw materials. It then has to be compressed or liquefied in an ...
The findings open new doors for ultra-fast electron microscopy
The absorption of energy from laser light by free electrons in a liquid has been demonstrated for the first time. Until now, this process was observed only in the gas phase. The findings, led by Graz University of Technology, open new doors for ultra-fast electron microscopy. The investigation ...
Findings turn previous understanding of ice formation upside down
Researchers from TU Graz in Austria and the Universities of Cambridge and Surrey succeeded to track down the first step in ice formation at a surface, revealing that additional energy is needed for water before ice can start to form. Water freezes and turns to ice when brought in contact with a ...
Green alternatives to fossil raw materials: Bio-based materials are expected to reduce pollution and drive the shift to a more sustainable economy
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 ...
Approval of EVBs for a second life
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 ...
A design principle for the self-assembly of functionalized molecules devised
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 ...
