The Graz University of Technology (German: Technische Universität Graz, short TU Graz) is the second largest university in Styria, Austria, after the University of Graz. Austria has three universities of technology – in Graz, in Leoben, and in Vienna. The Graz University of Technology was founded in 1811 by Archduke John of Austria. TUG, as the university is called by its students, is a public university. In the academic year 2010/11, 11,681 students were enrolled at the TUG. 14.8% of the students were from abroad and 21.4% of the students were female.

Ecological power storage battery made of vanillin

Researchers at TU Graz have found a way to convert the aromatic substance vanillin into a redox-active electrolyte material for liquid batteries. The technology is an important step toward ecologically sustainable energy ...

Brain Composer—'thinking' melodies onto a musical score

TU Graz researchers develop new brain-computer interface application that allows music to be composed by the power of thought. They have published their results in the current issue of the journal PLOS ONE.

A step toward red-light regulated optogenetic tools

The aim of optogenetics is to control genetically modified cells using light. A team of Graz scientists led by Andreas Winkler from the Institute of Biochemistry at TU Graz have set a milestone in the future development of ...

Experimental physicists redefine ultrafast, coherent magnetism

Electronic properties of materials can be directly influenced via light absorption in under a femtosecond (10-15 seconds), which is regarded as the limit of the maximum achievable speed of electronic circuits. In contrast, ...

When electric vehicles crash, what happens to the battery?

Safety, range and costs—these are the three big premises of electromobility. Safety definitely comes first. Lithium-based traction batteries are usually completely enclosed in the battery case and integrated in the vehicle ...

Sustainable 3D-printed super magnets

From wind turbines and electric motors to sensors and magnetic switching systems, permanent magnets have many electrical applications. The production of these magnets usually involves sintering or injection molding. But due ...

Energy hybrid—battery meets super-capacitor

Researcher at TU Graz demonstrates in Nature Materials that it is possible to combine the high-energy density of batteries with the high-power output of super capacitors in a single system – thanks to liquid energy storage ...
