HZDR Researchers Present Themselves
In these videos, scientists working at HZDR present themselves and their work—because science is, after all, a human endeavour.
Image Campaign "Simply Saxony": Dr. Wolfgang Skorupa (in German)
Materials scientist and organ player – our researcher Wolfgang Skorupa is a man of many talents. For the campaign "Simply Saxony" he was thus chosen to be portrayed as one of six persons with remarkable interests in Saxony. At HZDR's Ion Beam Center, he is researching precious organ pipes to find out how they can be protected from corrosion.
DocClip series: Our PhD students introduce themselves
About 150 PhD students from all around the world are researching at HZDR's eight institutes. In these short clips they introduce themselves and their research.
The DocClips were produced in cooperation with SCHEUFLER | FÖRSTER WISSENSKOMMUNIKATION. | Music by Frametraxx Gemafreie Musik.
Elisabeth Fischermeier – Copper transport in cells
PhD candidate Elisabeth Fischermeier explains her research question: "How do cells deal with copper?"
Geoffrey Chanda – Investigating Superconductors with IR and THz Spectroscopy
For his PhD degree Geoffrey Chanda investigated methods of infrared and terahertz spectroscopy at the Dresden High Magnetic Field Laboratory. With these methods it is possible to get to know more about the optical properties of novel superconductors in high magnetic fields.
Toni Kögler – Neutron-induced Fission in Heavy Nuclei
Toni Kögler from the Institute of Radiation Physics at the HZDR presents his research topic: „How can heavy atomic nuclei be effectively split with fast neutrons?
Richard Wilhelm – Slow Highly Charged Ions & Solid State Surfaces
Richard Wilhelm presents his research question in this DocClip, "What happens to solid surfaces when slow highly charged particles impact?"
Umar Masood – A Compact Gantry for Laser-Driven Radiation Therapy
Umar Masood is researching more compact and cost efficent gantry systems that are used in laser-driven radiation therapy.
Max Frenzel – Gallium, Germanium & Indium in Raw Materials
Our PhD candidate Max Frenzel explains why research on raw materials is important, especially for modern devices like smartphones.
Bezu Teschome – DNA Origami for Nanoelectronics and Plasmonics
Bezu Teschome from Ethopia is one of 150 PhD candidates at HZDR. In this DocClip the PhD student presents his research on DNA origami.
Salar Azizi – Breakup and Coalescence Models for Bubble Columns
Bubble columns aren’t only nice to look at. They are also an interesting research topic: Scientists in the field of fluid dynamics want to know how exactly these bubbles break up and coalesce. This way they can design generalized models that are essential for optimizing industrial processes. In this DocClip our PhD student Salar Azizi introduces this research.
Axel Hübl – GPU Computing for Laser-plasma Accelerators
In this short video Axel Hübl presents his research that focuses on improving computer models for laser-plasma accelerators. This could lead to more compact and efficient accelerators that can be used for cancer therapy in hospitals.
