Flexible bonding—hard and soft at the same time

To connect components with each other, gluing is preferred today instead of welding, riveting or using screws. That makes cars, planes and agricultural machines lighter. The requirements placed on the adhesive are high, though: ...

Carving out circuits that click into place

A strategy for assembly of electronic systems-especially the flexible structures needed for high-performance devices of the future-uses integrated circuits as Lego-like building blocks. "This plug-and-play approach is absolutely ...

Growing organs a few ink drops at a time

Printed replacement human body parts might seem like science fiction, but this technology is rapidly becoming a reality with the potential to greatly contribute to regenerative medicine. Before any real applications, "bioprinting" ...

The inflatable bridge

A wildlife crossing over the upcoming Koralm railway is being built using a new construction technique developed by TU Wien. Traditional support structures are replaced by an air cushion.
