Congratulations to Daisuke Takegami for his successful application for a DFG Walter Benjamin Fellowship. During his 24-month research stay at Waseda University, Tokyo, Japan with Prof. Mizokawa, which he will begin in September, he will work on “Systematic HAXPES study of transition metal/Pb/Bi-based energy materials”.
Congratulations to Claire Donnelly, who was awarded the IEEE Magnetics Society Early Career Award for “For excellent work on developing x-ray techniques for imaging magnetic structures in three dimensions”.
Uri Vool was awarded a starting grant from the European Research Council (ERC). He is an independent group leader at the MPI-CPfS, and will use the grant to explore novel superconductors by integrating them into hybrid quantum circuits.
Maia G. Vergniory, a researcher in our department of Solid State Chemistry, has recently been elected as APS Fellow by the American Physical Society (APS) for her pioneering work developing a new theory known as Topological Quantum Chemistry that has allowed to identify thousands of new topological materials.
A team of researchers from MPI for Chemical Physics of Solids and the MPI for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in collaboration with researchers from Switzerland and Spain has reported the first observation in a structurally achiral crystal, the Kagome superconductor CsV3Sb5. Their work has been published in the current issue of Nature.
We offer our warm congratulations to our Max Planck Fellow Professor J.C. Séamus Davis of the University of Oxford and University College Cork, who has been awarded the prestigious 2023 Oliver E. Buckley Prize of the American Physical Society.
