Christian Doppler Laboratory for Mass Transport through Paper
Karin Zojer, Institute of Solid State Physics
https://tugraz.webex.com/meet/karin.zojer

This talk will introduce the activities of the Christian Doppler Laboratory for mass transport through paper (CDL). The CDL aims at elucidating how the pore network in paper sheets influences, supports, or even prevents transfer of gases or particles from, to or via paper sheets ... more

Alternative Working Fluids for Condensation Particle Counters: Towards Material-Independent Aerosol Particle Number Measurement
Gandolf Feigl
https://tugraz.webex.com/meet/karin.zojer

Commercial condensation particle counters (CPCs) used in measuring nanometer sized particles like exhaust particulate matter (PM) work by condensing a working fluid (WF), commonly n-butanol, on particles and detecting the emerging droplets optically. The response of butanol CPCs ... more

Variational modeling meets learning
Thomas Pock, Institute of Computer Graphics and Vision
https://www.tugraz.at/institute/icg/research/team-pock/people/pock/

In this talk, I will show how to use learning techniques to significantly improve energy-based models. I will start by showing that even for the simplest models such as total variation, one can greatly improve the accuracy of the numerical approximation by learning the best dis ... more

Laser-Induced Graphene and its applications @ LAMPSe
Alexander Dallinger, Institute of Solid State Physics
https://tugraz.webex.com/meet/karin.zojer

A fairly new method to produce 3D nanoporous graphene, first discovered and investigated by Lin et al. in 2014, utilized commercially available CO2 laser sources to convert insulating Polyimide (PI) into conductive so-called Laser Induced Graphene (LIG). This process benefits fr ... more

Understanding Phonon-Related Properties in Metal-Organic Frameworks for Controlling Their Mechanical and Thermal Characteristics
Tomas Kamencek, Institute of Solid State Physics
https://tugraz.webex.com/meet/karin.zojer

Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are an emerging materials class which, due to their exceptionally large (nano-)porosity, can be used for numerous applications such as gas separation/capture or encapsulation and release of drugs. Functional devices based on these hybrid materials ... more

Micromechanics of lignocellulosic fibers
Caterina Czibula, Institut fr Biobasierte Produkte und Papiertechnik
https://tugraz.webex.com/meet/karin.zojer

Separating wood into its smallest fragments ‒ lignocellulosic fibers (LCFs) ‒ and treating them, leads to products like paper and paperboard which are connected to our everyday needs. An LCF has a complex hierarchical structure, which consists of several layers and an ... more
