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 (link). 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. In accordance with UG §99, the professorship position is limited to a 5-year period. The selection process has already begun.
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)

Humans and Their Data Cloud

Each person carries his/her own data cloud around. However, the various data sources are not put together and the informative value tends to be limited. "Wearable" technologies - Wearables - make it easier to collect data pertaining to human behavior, interaction, and experience patterns in particular. The potential usefulness for this kind of information is enormous, but its reliability and informative value have not been fully explored. This is where Prof. Bernad Batinic and his team begin.

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

The Subway on a Computer Chip

Computer chips today are approximately the size of a fingernail but contain anywhere from two billion transistors in order to generate data. They also contain about ten kilometers of the finest copper wire in order facilitate the exchange of information between transistors via electricty. This is anything but efficient and would be the equivalent of all residents in a city the size of Vienna walking instead of taking public transportation. Dr. Moritz Brehm's LIT project aims to create a "subway" in a computer chip by selectively replacing the copper wires with optical fibers. This would not only make the transfer of information much faster, but would also save energy and lower heat loss.

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

Dr. Moritz Brehm is a post-doctoral candidate at the Institute for Semiconductor and Solid-State 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."

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

Humans – a Hydrogel System

Humans are a very intelligently arranged hydrogel system: the brain, muscles, and tendons are soft materials connected to hard materials such as bone so that they form a soft, intelligent system. Priv. Docent Dr. Martin Kaltenbrunner and his team are studying these kinds of systems as a model to develop a new generation of soft, adaptable, and intelligent systems.

Career Accelerator Project Soft Electronics Laboratory SEL

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 Flows and Recurring Patterns

Many complex flows have recurring patterns, such as bubbles forming in huge reactors at chemical process industries in which polymer particles are churned and mixed in or turbulent vortexes form in liquid steel in so-called continuous casting plants.
Simulating these kinds of large, complex systems is extremely time-consuming but provides valuable information about their properties. Dr. Thomas Lichtenegger is developing methods to acquire insight into these properties in a more rapid, efficient way

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

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 multi-particle 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."

Dr. Alexandru Paler: Seed Project Complete Control Software for Reliable Quantum Computers

Seed Project Complete Control Software for Reliable Quantum Computers

Quantum computers are not yet available. But new information that quantum computers could be used to benefit research in chemistry has sparked a new hype to create one. Dr. Alexandru Paler is one of a few researchers in the world who is working on developing software to be used for error correction capabilities for quantum computers.

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

High Quality, Rapid Decisions for Complex Systems

Assoc.Univ. Prof. Dr. Milan Stehlik's LIT project looks at developing multicriteria methods for non-trivial applications based on algebraic, statistical, and stochastic methods and using specific software. We tend to make decisions - such as a decision regarding cancer treatment or when it comes to financial markets - quickly and more often than not, many contradictory factors are included in making that decision. Prof. Stehlik is developing methods and algorithms that would help us make help make better choices when comes to having to make fast decisions.
