LIT - Linz Institute of Technology

Created at the JKU in 2015, the Linz Institute of Technology (LIT) supports the development of outstanding research groups, particularly early-career researchers. The cornerstones of research at the JKU are of an interdisciplinary nature and the heart of LIT's mission is to produce research findings that have utility for practice and can be applied at companies.
LIT aims to strengthen research in already existing fields at the JKU. The current focus of research is on the LIT Factory and on Artificial Intelligence.

The LIT issues bi-annual calls for proposals. These proposals can be a part of one of the following categories:
• Young Career Projects
• Seed Projects
• Co-Funding Projects

Together with the Upper Austrian Federation of Industries, LIT has created an endowed professorship position in Cyberphysical Systems for Engineering and Production.
Together with industry partners, LIT has initiated "special semesters" designed to focus on a specific topic, thereby providing JKU researchers with new stimuli. Developed in collaboration with voestalpine, the first special semester will address the area of machine learning.

Univ. Prof. Dr. Bernad Batinic: SEED Project Wearable Insights: The Potential of Tracking Technology to Enrich Psychological Research (WIP)

People and their data clouds

Today, every person is surrounded by his or her own data cloud. The different sources of data are, however, not integrated, and their significance is therefore limited. Wearable technologies, also called wearables, simplify the collection of electronic data - particularly data that records patterns of human behavior, human interaction and human experience. The potential value of such data to psychological research is enormous, but the data’s reliability and validity have not been extensively researched – it is here that Professor Bernad Batinic and his team begin.

Dr. Moritz Brehm: Young Career-Project Electrically Driven Ge Quantum Dot Lasers towards On-Chip Applications

A subway on a computer chip

Today, every computer chip - about the size of a thumbnail - includes more than two billion transistors for data generation and over ten kilometers of the finest copper wire, through which electrical currents exchange information between the transistors. This is anything but an optimal situation: it is as if, in a city the size of Vienna, all the inhabitants could only move about on foot. In his LIT project, Dr. Moritz Brehm has taken on the task of building a “subway” on a computer chip: selected copper wires will be replaced with optical fibers, through which information can be transferred not only many times faster but also more energy-efficiently and with reduced heat losses.

Dr. Moritz Brehm

Dr. Moritz Brehm is a post-doctoral candidate at the Institute for Semiconductor and SolidState Physics at the JKU. His dissertation was supervised by Prof. Günther Bauer, "the most important station in my research career thus far, as you can feel the worldwide reputation everywhere but yet he allowed me to have space and certain freedoms."

Assoc. Univ. Prof. Dr. Andreas Ebner: Co-Funding-Project Role of Cell Membrane Associated Hsp70 in Cancer Cell Adhesion and Metastasis

Maintenance Man at the Wrong Place

Heat stress in cells results in the production of “heat shock protein 70”. Hsp70 is like a ‘maintenance man’ of sorts: the cell can repair or dispose of proteins that are not folded correctly. However, when it comes to cancer cells, the protein sits on the cell’s surface, possibly influencing the cell’s adhesion behavior resulting in the spread of metastases. As part of Assoc. Univ. Prof. Dr. Andrea Ebner’s team, Dr. Constanze Lamprecht is using scanning force microscopy techniques as part of her LIT project to study Hsp70’s unusual behavior.

Assoc. Univ. Prof. Dr. Andreas Ebner

Assoc. Univ. Prof. Dr. Andreas Ebner’s interest in natural sciences began back when he was in school. After graduation, he enrolled in an engineering-technical chemistry degree program at the JKU as he felt chemistry would allow him to, “…get to the bottom of things”. “By chance” his Diploma degree thesis was closely related to the field of biophysics, where he ultimately earned a doctorate and a post-doctorate degree.

Priv.-Doz. Dr. Martin Kaltenbrunner: Career Accelerator Project Soft Electronics Laboratory SEL

A human being: a hydrogel system

People are cleverly constructed hydrogel systems: the brain, muscles and tendons are soft materials that are connected to hard materials such as bones in such a way that they form a soft, intelligent system. These types of systems serve as models for Dr. Martin Kaltenbrunner and his team, as they seek to develop a new generation of soft, adaptable and intelligent systems.

Priv. Docent Dr. Martin Kaltenbrunner

Priv. Docent Dr. Martin Kaltenbrunner never initially intended to pursue a career in research, “... the basic lecture by Prof. Bauer was actually the reason why I ended up in physics. The fact that I ended up becoming a researcher at his department was a stroke of luck for me.”

Dr. Thomas Lichtenegger: Young Career Project Recurrence CFD – A Novel, Extremely Fast Simulation Technique for Complex Multiphase Flows

Complex currents and repetitive patterns

Many complex currents exhibit repetitive behavior, such as the formation of bubbles in the giant reactors of the chemical process industry - in which polymer particles are churned and mixed - or the turbulent vortices of liquid steels in so-called strand casting facilities.
The simulation of such large, complex systems is extremely time-consuming, but provides valuable information on their characteristics. Dr. Thomas Lichtenegger has developed methods with which rapid and efficient insight into these processes can be obtained.

Dr. Thomas Lichtenegger has been head of research for mesoscale modeling of granular currents at the Department for Particulate Flow Modelling at the JKU since 2014. After completing a degree in Theoretical Physics with a focus on quantum mechanical multiparticle systems at the JKU, he spent a year as a post-doctoral candidate at the University at Buffalo, New York where he focused in depth on the field of quantum fluids. Dr. Lichtenegger remarked, "While searching for new challenges I wanted to focus on something that shows a wider range of applications."

Assoc .Univ. Prof. Dr. Stefan Müllegger: Advanced Project Single-Atom Radio Frequency Fingerprinting / SARF2

An Atom’s Fingerprint

For several decades now, physicists have been able to use a special scanning tunneling microscope (STM) to dissolve materials and make each individual atom visible. At the same time, scientists can manipulate matter by simultaneously displacing single molecules using a fine metal wire. Assoc. Univ. Prof. Dr. Stefan Müllegger and his team are working on creating a unique measuring instrument to chemically identify individual atoms and bonds within individual molecules based on certain properties, thus creating an identifying factor similar to a ‘fingerprint’ for each atom.

Univ. Prof. Dr. Armando Rastelli: Co-Funding Project Scalable and Fully Tunable Quantum Dots for Quantum Technologies

Quantum Dots: New Properties Through Distortion

Semiconductor quantum dots - or “artificial atoms” - are being hailed as promising building blocks when it comes to advances in quantum communication and transmitting information. However, there is one drawback: Each quantum dot consists of thousands of atoms that cannot be controlled and each quantum dot differs from the others. Univ. Prof. Armando Rastelli and his team are developing a method to influence the properties of quantum dots and individually control each quantum dot so that their characteristics can meet precisely predefined specifications.

Univ. Prof. Dr. Armando Rastelli

Univ. Prof. Dr. Armando Rastelli has been head of the Department of Semiconductor and Solid-State Physics at the JKU since 2012.
After completing his academic studies in Italy, he “…received a permanent teaching position in a neighboring village. This was not an option for me.” Although Prof. Rastelli’s interest at the time was in cosmic radiation, he soon became involved in semiconductor research and has worked at at the ETH Zürich, the Max Planck Institute in Stuttgart, and IFW Dresden.

Assoc.Univ. Prof. Dr. Milan Stehlik: Seed Project Modeling Complex Dependencies: How to Make Strategic Multicriterial Decisions

High-quality, rapid decisions for complex systems

In his LIT project, Dr. Milan Stehlik is refining multi-criteria methods for use in for nontrivial applications,based on algebraic, statistical and stochastic methods and a unique software package. Decisions, whether in cancer treatment or financial markets, must often be made quickly - and many, often contradictory, criteria must be taken into account. Stehlik is developing methods and algorithms to provide optimal, rapid solutions in such cases.
