Current Scientific News and Reports of the OePG
Due to the rising cost of printing and distribution, the publication of the OePG's periodical <Physik|AT> had to be discontinued by the end of 2010. This page contains current scientific news and reports that previously would have been published in the periodical. After a certain period, currently one year, older contributions are moved to the Archive of the Scientific News and Contributions of the OePG, where they will remain for an unlimited time.
You can find more current scientific contributions and reports at the website of Europhysics News, which is freely accessible.
Univ. Prof. Dr. Dr.h.c. Peter Varga deceased
With great sadness we announce that our colleague Peter Varga has passed on October 27, 2018. Peter Varga was deeply invested in TU Wien and the Institute of Applied Physics (IAP), and he was a major force in shaping our institute into one of the world's leading centers of surface physics. Most of all he was a wonderful human being. With his elegance, his energy, his wit, and his generosity he was a close friend and a role model to us and to many others.
