Team of researchers uncovers mechanism to store electrical energy

This applies to new forms of energy production as well as for e-mobility or microelectronics. Super capacitors are modern energy storage systems which are much faster and can be charged or discharged more often than normal batteries.

An interdisciplinary team of scientists led by the Institute for Physics at Montan University Leoben, with the participation of the Graz University of Technology, the University of Bienna and the Institute for New Materials in Saarbrücken has now revealed new ways to better understand these phenomena. For the first time the processes described have been rendered visible on an atomic level, and new possibilities including optimized electrode materials were demonstrated with a combination of X-ray scattering experiments and atomistic computer simulations.

Austria Leads in Globalization

Austria ranks fourth in the latest globalization index compiled by the Swiss Economic Institute of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH). This means Austria is one of the most globalized countries in the world. The Netherlands is at the top of the ranking, followed by Ireland and Belgium. Accordingly, the first four spots remain unchanged from the previous year, but all four countries are so close to each other that the differences are hardly perceptible, according to the ETH. Switzerland moved up two notches to fifth place, ahead of Singapore, which dropped one notch.

Austria: Hot Spot for Life Sciences Companies

In recent years Austria has turned into a hot spot for life sciences. An increasing number of life sciences companies locate their business operations in the Alpine Republic due to its favorable underlying conditions. These firms strengthen the business location through investments, innovations and by creating jobs.
