Supervision of students
Altogether 12 diploma-thesis and 14 doctoral-thesis students from TU Wien, Uni Wien, MU Leoben, and TU Eindhoven were supervised by Rudi at Seibersdorf.
In 1997, the administration of ARCS imposed drastic measures upon the employees, among them suspension of the company's pension system, causing the immediate departure of a large number of employees. Among those leaving ARCS at their own request was Rudi who moved his lab together with his that-time students from Seibersdorf to TU Wien where he operated, until 2011, a private gas-analysis lab in the frame of a freelance research activity.
