After the great success of the "Highlights of Physics" last year with 60,000 visitors, the Department of Physics of the University of Münster (WWU) is once again offering an event for the general public: Speaking at the lecture series "Physics at lunchtime" once a month Münster physics professors. They combine vivid explanations of recent work on Nobel Prizes with current research at the WWU. "Physics at lunchtime" always starts on Saturdays at 12 o'clock in the lecture hall F2 of the Fürstenberghaus, Domplatz 20-22.
The rectorate of the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster (WWU) honored the best doctoral candidates of the year 2017 on Friday (December 1st). 123 young scientists had received the highest praise for their dissertation and thus the best possible title "summa cum laude".
Department of Physics distinguishes work on modern ultrathin semiconductors
Dr. Matthias Drüppel from the Institute for Solid State Theory of the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster (WWU) receives an Infineon PhD Award worth 2.500 Euro for his outstanding dissertation. The physicist has studied the basic optical properties of novel, atomically thin semiconductor materials. These can serve as a starting point for the next generation of optical and electronic components. The Department of Physics of the WWU awards the Infineon PhD Award annually together with Infineon AG, Warstein.
