Best Communication Award to Martin Dirauf

Martin Dirauf wins 2nd Prize for the Best Communication of Early Career Investigator in Aerogels Processing and Modelling

ITUN Researcher Martin Dirauf has obtained the 2nd Prize for the Best Communication of Early Career Investigator in Aerogels Processing and Modelling in the Training School on Aerogels processing, modelling and environmental-driven applications, held at Coimbra, Portugal, from October 21-23.


He presented a talk entitled “Measurement of mixture composition inside Bio-Gels during solvent exchange using 1D-Raman spectroscopy”. The presentation focused on the background of 1D-Raman line measurements and its possible applications in aerogels processing.


The Training school, organized as part of the AERoGELS COST Action network featured presentations by renowned experts from the aerogels community as well as several practical courses on topics like molecular simulation, freeze- and supercritical drying of gels.
