Here, she is seen examining materials using the Kerr microscope for boundary magnetism research with support from Rantej Bali. A summer spent in the lab Between July and September 2012, a group of ten students from Europe, Asia and Africa have been doing work at HZDR. The students were picked by a panel of referees and are part of a new international studies program here at the center. As part of the program, students are able to work on current research topics, ranging from radio-therapeutics and radiation physics to nanostructures and materials research and covering the breadth of HZDR‘s research in the areas of health, matter, and energy. Participants are supported by stipends amounting to 250 Euros per week as well as receiving free accomodation in the new campus guest house. The program allows students to attend dedicated lectures given by various HZDR scientists. Individual laboratory projects within the program range in duration from five to twelve weeks. At the end of the internship, each student is expected to publicly present their project they have been working on during the summer. Guided tours of the HZDR research facilities ensure that students get a true sense of the scope of research conducted at Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf. In order to give them a chance to get to know each other as well as Dresden and the surrounding area, Michael Bussmann, Kay Potzger and Annette Weissig, who organized the program, have scheduled a number of different activities. In a first analysis Kay Potzger comments on the new program: “The experience with the students has been a very positive one. Since participants are chosen by a panel of four scientists, they experience their internship as a recognition and are putting all of their energy into their work.“ Michael Bussmann adds: “So far, we are very happy with the program and, thus, have high expectations for next time.“
