EDISON Young Researcher Award
Sebastian Walfort (PhD student in the group of Prof. Salinga) was awarded the EDISON Young Researcher Award at this year's EDISON conference. Here, participants from all over the world discussed latest progress in the field of fundamental physics and applications of electron dynamics in semiconductors, optoelectronic devices, and nanostructures. The international jury awarded the prize to Sebastian Walfort for his presentation entitled "Correlations in Resistance Fluctuations of Germanium Telluride Glass".
We congratulate him and are excited to see how this research topic will develop further.
Graeme Murch Award
During the recent DSL (Diffusion in Solids and Liquids) Conference hold in Heraklion, Crete, Greece, June 2023, Dr. Mohan Garlapati Muralikrishna (currently Alexander von Humboldt Fellow in AG Wilde) received a prestigious Graeme Murch Award as the highest distinction given by the DSL conference organizers. The award recognizes the contributions of early career scientists (up to 5 years of research experience following Ph. D.) within the field of diffusion research.
With Dr. M. Garlapati, the Award is hold by a researcher associated with our Institute for the second time in a row after the nomination of Dr. Esakkiraja Neelamegan as the first Award holder in 2022. An undisputable success and recognition of the work on atomic diffusion in condensed matter in the Institute of Materials Physics at the University of Münster.
The Award recognizes the ground-breaking research work of Dr. M Garlapati on the elaboration, benchmarking and application of the novel augmented tracer-interdiffusion couple method to different systems from binary Fe-Ga up to B2-ordered multi-principal element alloys. The current research of Dr. M. Garlapati encompasses also various diffusion-based phenomena in a broad spectrum of technologically important materials ranging from metallic alloys to oxides.
We congratulate Dr. Mohan Garlapati Muralikrishna with this prestigious Award and wish him further successes in his carrier!

Graeme Murch Award
During the recent DSL (Diffusion in Solids and Liquids) Conference hold in Florence, Italy, June 2022, Dr. Esakkiraja Neelamegan (currently post-doc by Apl.-Prof. Dr. S. Divinski) has received a prestigious Graeme Murch Award. The Graeme Murch Award was for the first time granted in the 19-year history of the DSL Conferences and it is the highest distinction given by the DSL conference organizers. This award recognizes the contributions of early career scientists (up to 5 years of research experience following Ph. D.) within the wider field of diffusion research.
Dr. Esakkiraja conducted his PhD study at the Department of Materials Engineering, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India in the research group of Prof. Dr. Aloke Paul (who was a former AvH Fellow at our Institute and worked with Apl.-Prof. Dr. S. Divinski). Dr. Esakkiraja contributed largely to the development of novel pseudo-binary and pseudo-ternary couple methods which have broken the paradigm of interdiffusion in multi-component alloys with the number of components larger than three. He performed a series of fundamental experiments which for the first time provided an access to the quantitative determination of the (pseudo-binary) interdiffusion coefficients in multi-component alloys. Even intrinsic diffusion coefficients were convincingly shown to be accessible via these novel approaches, together with systematic accounting for the vacancy wind factors.
The current research work of Dr. Esakkiraja is directed to the combination of the two fundamental techniques of diffusion studies in the multi-component alloys, i.e. the (radio)tracer and interdiffusion couple methods, in different systems including multi-principal element alloys.
We congratulate Dr. Esakkiraja Neelamegan with this prestigious Award and wish further successes in his carrier!
