Dr. Tobias Südkamp (AG Bracht),

Dr. Fabian Hergemöller (AG Stolwijk und AG Wilde) and

Dr. Yaser Hamedi Jouybari (AG Schmitz, Universität Stutgart und AG Wilde)

finished their doctorate today:
With the certificate, which was handed by Prof. Dr. Klasen (Dean of the Physics Department) on 13th July 2018, it became official. Congratulation!

Bachelor's and master's degrees from the summer term 2018

We congratulate

Christoph Klusmann on his bachelor's degree and Marius Gerlitz on his master's degree!

Starting Ramp Program

Our PhD student Farnaz Abdollahzadeh Davani was successful in receiving funding for her project 'Impact of micro-alloying on failure and fracture of notched Pd-based glasses' within a Starting Ramp Program for junior scientists.
The project is funded with 5.500 € by the German Science Foundation (DFG - SPP 1594 - Topological Engineering of Ultrastrong Glasses). Congratulations to Ms. Davani for this success!




Finally! – Our new FEI Titan Themis G3 300 is operational making (sub-)atomic resolution materials analysis and characterization available. The new device allows direct imaging of the atomic structure, electron energy loss spectroscopy with high spectral resolution using a monochromator, and elemental mapping of monolayers thanks to a four-quadrant energy-dispersive X-ray spectrometer. A fast CMOS camera together with a comprehensive set of special specimen holders enables tracing reactions or transformations as a function of temperature, sample environment, mechanical or electrical attenuation. This exhaustive configuration serves to attain a much more detailed and sound comprehension of elementary processes at the atomic scale that determine macroscopic materials properties.
