Short description

The Institute of Science and Technology Austria (IST Austria) is a PhD granting institution located in the city of Klosterneuburg, 18 km from the center of Vienna. The Institute is dedicated to cutting-edge research in the natural, mathematical and computer sciences. Established jointly by the federal government of Austria and the provincial government of Lower Austria, the Institute was inaugurated in 2009 and will grow to about 100 research groups with 1000 scientists by 2026.

    Resolving the puzzles of graphene superconductivity

    A single layer of carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb lattice makes up the promising nanomaterial called graphene. Research on a setup of three sheets of graphene stacked on top of one another so that their lattices are aligned but shifted — forming rhombohedral trilayer graphene – reveale ... more

    Description of rotating molecules made easy

    Feynman diagrams are a powerful tool in condensed matter physics. By turning highly complex equations into sets of simple diagrams, the method has established itself as one of the sharpest tools in a theoretical physicist’s toolbox. Giacomo Bighin, a postdoc in the group of Mikhail Lemeshko ... more

    Color effects from transparent 3D-printed nanostructures

    Most of the objects we see are colored by pigments, but using pigments has disadvantages: such colors can fade, industrial pigments are often toxic, and certain color effects are impossible to achieve. The natural world, however, also exhibits structural coloration, where the microstructure ... more
