ECSEL award for Lisa Marie Weniger

Lisa Marie Weniger has got an award from ECSEL (Electronic Components and Systems for European Leadership) Austria for her master thesis research in the area of thin film metallic glasses based on noble metals which is conducted in collaboration with Lehrstuhl für Funktionale Werkstoffe und Werkstoffsysteme. Novel Gold-Silver-Silicon amorphous alloys, which were sputter deposited on polymer substrates, possess attractive combination of properties including corrosion resistance, biocompatibility, mechanical robustness and partial optical transparency. In her Master thesis Lisa Marie Weniger is uncovering the fundamental electrical and mechanical properties of novel alloys and examines their potential applications as ultrathin flexible electrodes.
