Recognition award of the “Dr. Maria Schaumayer-Stiftung”

DI Dr. Gerda Buchberger B.Sc., research assistant at the Institute of Biomedical Mechatronics, received a recognition award of the “Dr. Maria Schaumayer-Stiftung” (http://www.schaumayerstiftung.net) for her doctoral thesis entitled “Polymer Composite Transducers”. In her thesis she designed transducers by combining different materials in such a way that the resulting devices are advantageous compared to state-of-the-art solutions, especially with regard to simplicity (see Figure). To this end, she used so-called “functional polymers”. Possible application areas of the developed transducers range from light- and touch-point localization on flexible sensor surfaces to dielectric elastomer transducers for “soft” robotics, vibration damping and cooling of electronic components in consumer goods. The work was conducted at the “Institute of Microelectronics and Microsensors” in cooperation with the “Institute of Technical Mechanics”, the “Department of Soft Matter Physics” and the “Department of Particulate Flow Modeling” at JKU.

"OÖ Leistungspreis 2017" in the category "Science" (< 40 years)

DI Dr. Gerda Buchberger B.Sc., research assistant at the Institute of Biomedical Mechatronics and DI Dr. Jürgen Schöftner, research assistant at the Institute of Technical Mechanics, are awarded with the 2. prize of the "OÖ Leistungspreis 2017" in the category "Science" (http://www.ooe-leistungspreis.at/). They conducted research in the field of resistive electrodes for sensors and actuators. As they showed, resistive electrodes can be applied for localization of light- and touch-points on sensor surfaces, for vibration damping and for shape-control of piezoelastic beams.
The honored project was interdisciplinary including the Institute for Microelectronics and Microsensors (head: Univ.-Prof. Jakoby), the Institute of Technical Mechanics (head: o. Prof. Irschik) and the Department of Soft Matter Physics (head: Univ.-Prof. Bauer) at JKU.
