Jan Plefka im Sommersemester 2014 Gastprofessor an der ETH Zürich

Professor Jan Plefka verbringt sein Forschungsfreisemester 2014 am renommierten Institut für theoretische Physik an der ETH Zürich. Er forscht dort gemeinsam mit den Mitgliedern der Arbeitsgruppen Quantenfeldtheorie und Stringtheorie von Prof. M. Gaberdiel und Prof. N. Beisert zu Themen der Mathematischen Physik. Der Austausch stärkt die Kooperation von IRIS Adlershof mit der ETH. Darüberhinaus hält er eine Spezialvorlesung an der ETH zum Thema "Streuamplituden in Eichtheorien", einem aktuellen Forschungsthema am Schnittpunkt von mathematischer Physik und der Phänomenologie der Elementarteilchen. Diesem Thema ist auch sein kürzlich erschienenes Lehrbuch in der Lecture Notes in Physics Reihe des Springer Verlags gewidmet, das mit Dr. J. Henn (IAS Princeton) verfasst wurde.

Norbert Koch new Chair Professor at FUNSOM, Soochow University, VR China

On 19 February 2014, Professor Norbert Koch, a member of IRIS Adlershof, was appointed as Chair Professor of the Functional Nano & Soft Materials Laboratory (FUNSOM), a key institute of Soochow University in Suzhou, China (PRC).
"With this appointment I can contribute to the internationalization strategy of FUNSOM, which promotes interdisciplinary research (physics, chemistry, electrical engineering, biology, medicine) in the field of nanostructured and soft materials for electronics and optoelectronics in China. The faculty pays particular attention to an excellent education of students in an open-minded environment, and I am looking forward to contributing with topical block-seminars and coaching in small groups. The mutual exchange of students between IRIS Adlershof and FUNSOM is another focus of this enticing cooperation.", says Norbert Koch.
