Thomas Gegenhuber and Manuela Schiek
Our LIT Breakfast Briefings feature outstanding and impressive JKU researchers who talk to the scientific community about findings from their current research.
We present two topics and discussions in 30-minute sessions.
Date: April 26, 2022 8.30 am
Location: LIT Open Innovation Center, OIC Stufenforum

Spectroscopic Investigation of Solid-Liquid Interfaces under Operational Conditions
We envision restoration of eyesight by retinal implants for vision impaired people suffering from an incurable degeneration of photoreceptors as the light sensitive part of the retina. The most critical part - not only of retinal implants but implantable medical devices in general - is the interface between the opto-electronic device and the biological tissue. These are solid-liquid interfaces, and to understand their functionality under operational conditions, we have developed a unique spectroscopic tool.

Organizing in Times of Crisis
In my talk I will reflect on the process how we try to organize help for Ukrainian students. A key message is that we need to do more to improve the interfaces among societal sectors (e.g. public administrations and organizations, civil society and private sector) to effectively help.
