We congratulate Mr. Lukas Grünewald on the successful completion of his PhD on May 06, 2022 on the topic "Electron Microscopic Investigation of Superconducting Fe- and Cu-based Thin Films". We wish Lukas the best for the future - you are always welcome at the LEM and we are looking forward to any future notification of your further private and professional life.
Mr. Martin Calkovsky successfully defended his dissertation at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) on April 29, 2022. The title of his dissertation is "Material Contrast by Scanning Electron Microscopy and Low-Energy Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy". We are very proud and wish all the best for his professional and private future!
ILIAS course for “electron microscopy II” is now online. Register now. In addition, the online registration for the corresponding exercises for EM2 is active under ”Academics”-> Electron microscopy II.
We are pleased to welcome Miss Yiling Huang to the MNM-LEM team. She will stay with us for one year with her CSC scholarship and started working on her visiting PhD on April 1, 2022 in the area of "creep induced defects in single crystal superalloy". We wish her much success!
We are pleased to welcome Mr. Huichao Wu to the MNM.-LEM-team. Since March.03.2022 he has started his master thesis on the topic “Investigation of the creep-induced deformation mechanism of a eutectic Mo-Si-Ti alloy by transmission electron microscopy (TEM)”.
We wish him much success!
The PhD defense of Ms. Milena Hugenschmidt took place on 04.Feb.2022. With her systematic work on “STEM in SEM: Electron-Beam Broadening, Contamination, and Investigation of ZIF-8 by Correlative Electron Microscopy” she has been awarded the title Dr. rer. nat.!
Congratulations, Milena and we wish you all the best for your future! Remember to drop by anytime and LEM is always your home.
We are pleased to welcome Mr. Hemanth Thota to the LEM team. He started his PhD on January 1, 2022 and will be working in the area of "High Temperature Materials" in the project GRK 2561. We wish him much success!
Prof. Dr. Claus Feldmann will take over the provisional management of the LEM from 01.07.2021. The institute is looking forward to the cooperation and thanks him for his willingness and the interest shown.
We are pleased to welcome Dr. rer. nat. Tibor Lehnert. He will join us on 01.07. in the area of "High Temperature Electrolysis". We are looking forward to the cooperation.
We are happy to welcome Mr. M.Sc. Florian Wankmüller in our team. He will support us in our research activities in the project "WirLebenSOFC"! We are looking forward to the cooperation.
We congratulate Prof. Dr. Gerthsen to her new tilte as "KIT Distinguished Senior Fellow". Thus, Ms. Gerthsen will continue to be present at KIT as well as to pursue her scientific topics and will be reachable under her previous contact data.
After more than 27 years! as head of the institute, Prof. Dr. D. Gerthsen will go into well-deserved retirement on 01.04. We thank her sincerely for the many good and successful years of leading the institute. She has played a major role in advancing the LEM and making it what it is today.
