Philipp Lange awarded the Lise-Meitner Prize

The 2014 Lise-Meitner Prize for the best dissertation went to Dr. Phillip Lange from the Physics Department at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. This prize has been annually granted from the Vereinigung der Freunde und Förderer des Instituts für Physik e.V (Friends and Supporters of the Institute of Physics) since 1998. Dr. Lange did his summa cum laude doctoral degree in macromolecular physics on the topic of optical and structural properties of systems of conjugated molecules and graphenes with IRIS’s chairman, Prof. Dr. Jürgen P. Rabe. Dr. Lange was also supported by IRIS Adlershof. Kathrin Höfner and Johann Förster were additionally awarded for their master theses. We heartly congratulate these young researchers for their fine work.




Christian Limberg, a new member at IRIS Adlershof

Christian Limberg, Professor for Inorganic and General Chemistry at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, is a new member at IRIS Adlershof. He is internationally well known for his work on molecular metal-oxygen systems and their application for catalytic oxidation of hydrocarbons. He is a member of the Excellence Cluster “Unifying Concepts in Catalysis” (UniCat) and Spokesman for the new SFB 1109 “Understanding of Metal Oxide/Water Systems at the Molecular Scale: Structural Evolution, Interfaces, and Dissolution” which began in April 2014. IRIS Adlershof would like to congratulate Christian Limberg and is looking forward to his collaboration.




Einstein Professor: Claudia Draxl has become a Max Planck fellow at the Fritz-Haber-Institut Berlin

Professor Claudia Draxl, who is a member at IRIS-Adlershof, has been appointed by the President of the Max-Planck Society a Max Planck fellow at the Fritz-Haber Institute of the MPG in Berlin. The Max Planck fellow program will not only be responsible for documenting and strengthening the cooperation between the universities and the Max-Planck Institutes but will also set up a research group of its own at the Fritz-Haber Institut.
