H.F. Mark medal for Robert Liska and Jürgen Stampfl

For their joint work on polymers for additive manufacturing, Robert Liska and Jürgen Stampfl received the 2021 H.F. Mark medal, which is awarded annually by OFI in remembrance of the renowned polymer pioneer Hermann Mark.

2021 Federal diploma prize for Daniel Allinger

Former team meber Daniel Allinger received the prestigious Austrian federal state prize for his diploma thesis "Development of concepts for carrier films used in hot-lithography systems with high throughput".

This federal state prize, which is awarded  with €3,000 in cash, has been awarded annually since 1990 to the 50 best diploma and master's degrees from all Austrian universities.

Gewinn Jungunternehmerpreis 2020

Among several hundred applicants, the two TU-Spinoff UpNano GmbH was ranked place 4 and received a special prize "Idea of the Year" in the national competition Gewinn Jungunternehmer 2020.

3D-printing and Additive Manufacturing Technologies (AMT)

We are a team of mechanical engineers, materials scientists and chemists, headed by Prof. Liska, Prof. Ovsianikov and Prof. Stampfl. Our goal is to do research in the field of lithography-based Additive Manufacturing Technologies (3D-printing). Although our focus is on materials, we aim at covering the complete process chain from initiators over thermosetting polymers to system design and development and thermomechanical characterization of the obtained parts and materials.

More details about our work on multiphoton lithography can be found in the following book.

Education and Research

Our group is actively working in numerous research projects ranging from fundamental science to applied and industrial researc. In the last years we coordinated and partcipated in three H2020 projects, three ERC projects and two Christian Doppler laboratories. Furthermore, we were partner in many national (FFG, FWF, Wiener Wirtschaftsagentur) project, as well as international industrial projects.

In addition to our research, we are involved in the education of chemists, mechanical engineers and materials scientists. Classes with close relation to AMT include
