Excellent! HZDR awards for outstanding achievements in 2018

News of 14.03.2019

Dr. Dominik Kraus (Institute of Radiation Physics) and his team received the HZDR Research Award 2018 at today's ceremony at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR): The HZDR board of directors, Prof. Roland Sauerbrey and Dr. Ulrich Breuer, honored their outstanding work on warm dense matter. The team demonstrated that diamonds can form inside large ice planets like Neptune or Uranus. In their experiments, they confirmed theoretical predictions of astrophysics. The PhD Award honored Dr. Lars Opherden (Dresden High Magnetic Field Laboratory) for his PhD thesis "Untersuchung magnetischer Pyrochlor-Systeme". Two PhD Recognition Awards were presented to Dr. Miriam Bader (Institute of Resource Ecology) and to Dr. Jurjen Pieter Couperous Cabadağ (Institute of Ion Beam Physics and Materials Research).

A new spin in nano-electronics

Press Release of 25.02.2019

In recent years, electronic data processing has been evolving in one direction only: The industry has downsized its components to the nanometer range. But this process is now reaching its physical limits. Researchers at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) are therefore exploring spin waves or so-called magnons – a promising alternative for transporting information in more compact microchips. Cooperating with international partners, they have successfully generated and controlled extremely short-wavelength spin waves. The physicists achieved this feat by harnessing a natural magnetic phenomenon, as they explain in the journal Nature Nanotechnology (DOI: 10.1038/s41565-019-0383-4).

Wie der Teilchenstrahl seine Struktur bekommt

Press Release of 24.01.2019

Die Behandlung von Tumoren mit Protonen gilt als sehr vielversprechend. Bislang werden dafür allerdings große und kostspielige Anlagen benötigt, die diese geladenen Teilchen auf die nötige Energie bringen. Eine Alternative könnte die Beschleunigung per Laserkraft sein, was kompaktere Geräte ermöglichen würde. Im Profil der lasergetriebenen Protonenstrahlen kommt es jedoch immer wieder zu Unregelmäßigkeiten, was hinderlich für die medizinische Anwendung ist. Bislang ging die Forschung davon aus, dass dies auf komplizierte Plasmaprozesse im Beschleuniger zurückgeht, die schwer zu kontrollieren sind. Physiker des Helmholtz-Zentrums Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) haben nun eine alternative Erklärung im Fachmagazin Nature Communications (DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-07756-z) vorgestellt.

Poland newest member of the European Magnetic Field Laboratory

News of 23.01.2019

The Ministry of Science and Higher Education in Poland has awarded funding to the University of Warsaw to secure access to the European Magnetic Field Laboratory (EMFL) for the Polish user community. The University of Warsaw will represent Poland in the EMFL for a duration of five years, starting from 1st of January 2019. The membership enables Polish users access to all the EMFL installations and measurement techniques, expert support from local staff members, as well as funding for travel and subsistence.

Focused Radiation

Press Release of 21.01.2019

The Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) has recently begun coordinating the EU project RADIATE, in which eighteen European partners make their ion beam facilities available for measurements by guests from the scientific community and the commercial sector. In addition, the development of software programs and support for junior researchers is part of the four-year project, which is funded by the EU with approximately ten million Euros. The project launch takes place on January 22nd and 23rd in Dresden.
