• The Wolfgang E. Ernst Festschrift on the occasion of his 70th birthday is out - a highly diverse collection of PCCP articles published by the Royal Society of Chemistry. Dear Wolfgang, congratulations and all the best wishes! With your broad interest in all sorts of topics and your personal motivation you have been an inspiration to many generations of scientists.

  • TU Graz hosted the Roadshow of the Young Academy of the Austrian Academy of Sciences on June 13, 2023.

    The IEP was there with two contributions.

  • Das Institut für Experimentalphysik der TU Graz revolutioniert in Zusammenarbeit mit der Gruppe um F. Capasso / Harvard die Handhabung von extrem ultravioletter Strahlung um die Solarzellen und Prozessoren der Zukunft zu erforschen.
