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.

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.
