Congratulations to Eteri Svanidze, who was awarded the 7th ERES Junior award from the European Rare Earth and Actinide Society (ERES) for “her talented contributions to the solid-state chemistry and physics of f-elements“. The award was presented at ICFE-11, which was held in Strasbourg (France) last August.
The hardness of a material normally is set by the strength of chemical bonds between electrons of neighbouring atoms, not by freely flowing conduction electrons. Now a team of scientists from MPI-CPfS, Germany, Japan, Korea and the United States has shown that current-carrying electrons can make the lattice much softer than usual in the material Sr…
The Institute of Low Temperature and Structural Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Wroclaw awards Prof. Juri Grin, director at the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids, an honorary professorship.
Prof. Claudia Felser, Direktorin am Max-Planck-Institut für Chemische Physik fester Stoffe, wurde in die renommierte "Hall of Fame der deutschen Forschung" des manager magazins berufen. Diese Ehre wird ihr für ihre wegweisenden Beiträge zur Weiterentwicklung der Forschung im Bereich der Quantenchemischen Topologie zuteil.
Claire Donnelly has been awarded a Starting Grant from the European Research Council (ERC). She is the Lise Meitner Group Leader of Spin3D at the MPI CPfS and will use the grant to explore the effects of three dimensionality on quantum nanomaterials.
On September 4, 2023, Saxony's Minister-President Michael Kretschmer and Max Planck President Patrick Cramer will be hosting a ceremonial event at the Kulturpalast in Dresden to mark the 30-year success story of the Max Planck Society in Leipzig and Dresden.
The Boehringer Ingelheim Foundation awards funding through the Plus 3 Perspectives program to Dr. Eteri Svanidze, group leader of the REALM group at MPI CPfS. Through this highly coveted program, she will receive independent funding, which is aimed at supporting outstanding junior group leaders during their first appointment.
The Condensed Matter Division of the European Physical Society awards its 2023 EPS Europhysics Prize to Claudia Felser, director at the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids in Dresden and B. Andrei Bernevig, professor of physics at Princeton University “for seminal contributions to the classification, prediction, and discovery of…
