15 years Matheon

The research center MATHEON, in which IRIS Adlershof-member Prof. Jürg Kramer is participating, celebrated its 15th anniversary on 15.11.2017 with a festival of Berlin Mathematics.
IRIS Adlershof congratulates warmly!



Beating the thermodynamic limit with photo-activation of n-doping in organic semiconductors using “hyper-reductants”

In an article that just appeared in Nature Materials, a team of researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology, the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, and Princeton University demonstrates a new approach towards n-doping of organic semiconductors, which allows bypassing the dopant sensitivity to the ambient and simultaneously enables doping organic electron transport materials that have been out of reach for n-doping so far.
“We believe that our work enables simple processing of n-doped organic semiconductors in numerous device architectures, where the critical step - doping activation - can take place after standard device encapsulation. This will contribute substantially to improved device lifetime and in some case simplify device fabrication.” notes Prof. Norbert Koch from Humboldt-Universität, member of 
IRIS Adlershof.

Christian Bogner was working as a postdoc and principal investigator of a DFG project in the group of Prof. Dirk Kreimer, who is a member of IRIS Adlershof, at the Department of Physics at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Since May 2013 Christian Bogner is a candidate for postdoctoral lecture qualification (Habilitand). He is involved in the field of elementary particle physics at the interface between mathematics and physics. His interest is in new function classes that play an role in the calculation of Feynman integrals. From January 2018, Christian Bogner will be supported by a Einstein Junior Fellowship.

We are delighted that the talented young scientist will remain in Berlin and cordially congratulate!


“Distinguished Award 2017 for Novel Materials and their Synthesis” for Prof. Norbert Koch

At the IUPAC NMS-XIII conference in Nanjing, Norbert Koch, Professor at the Department of Physics, member of IRIS Adlershof and head of a joint research group at the Helmholtz-Centre Berlin for materials and energy, has been awarded the "Distinguished Award 2017 for Novel Materials and their Synthesis "of IUPAC (International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry) and of the Conference Committee. Norbert Koch received the award for his research on hybrid electronic materials and their interfaces in electronic and optoelectronic components. IRIS Adlershof congratulates warmly. 


Prof. Dr. Arno Rauschenbeutel accepted professorship

Prof. Dr. Arno Rauschenbeutel (Technische Universität Wien) has accepted the W3-professorship "Fundamentals of Optics and Photonics" at the Department of Physics of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. The laureate of the renowned Alexander von Humboldt-Professorship is going to research in the field of experimental quantum optics and quantum information. IRIS Adlershof gratulates and is looking forward to a fruitful cooperation.
