Welcome Tobias Hauth!

We are pleased to welcome Mr. Tobias Hauth as a new team assistant at the LEM from 01.11.2023. He will take over the secretariat during Ms. Michaela Höllmüller's parental leave. We wish him a good start and look forward to working with him!

Welcome Ingrit Nurak!

We are pleased to welcome Ms. Ingrit Nurak to the LEM team. She started her PhD thesis on 16.10.2023 and will work in the field of "Characterization of Materials Compound from Composite Materials" in cooperation with the Institute IAM-WK. We wish her good luck!

Welcome Ardavan Makvandi!

We are happy to welcome Ardavan Makvandi in our team from 01.10.23. He will support us in the project "WirLebenSOFC"! We are looking forward to the cooperation.

Completed master's degree and new doctoral student K. Kraft!

Kristian Kraft successfully completed his master's degree in physics on September 5 with his master's thesis on "Identification of structural changes and electrical properties of 3D microstructures as a function of pressure and temperature." The thesis was supervised by Y. M. Eggeler, Q. Sun and C. Dolle supervised. Following this, he will start his PhD thesis at LEM. We wish him good luck!

Welcome Arne Schwartz!

We are happy to welcome Arne Schwartz to the MNM-LEM team. Since 01.08.2023 he is working on his bachelor thesis on the topic "?????". We wish him much success!

Electron microscopy seminar 2023

Our comprehensive electron microscopy seminar took place in Bad-Herrenalb from 19-21.04.2023. We had a good time together with fruitful scientific exchanges, new ideas to interconnect, and social events. Looking forward to the next EM seminar.

LEM at MC2023 in Darmstadt

We had a very inspiring electron microscopy conference in Darmstadt with many own contributions. We met friends and colleagues in person again and look forward to the next microscopy event.
