02.03.2023: Lively interest at the second IRIS Junior breakfast
Today, at another breakfast with coffee and tea, fruit and bagels, the IRIS junior scientists were able to exchange views on scientific and other topics and get to know each other better. They met in the comfortably furnished common room in the IRIS house. After some appetizing short lectures, there were laboratory tours through the IRIS research building on the subject of materials science, in particular photovoltaics and OLED. Due to the great interest, the scientists were divided into three groups and guided separately through the laboratories. Scientists from the groups of Prof. Koch and Prof. List-Kratochvil showed their workplaces and explained their experiments. The participants from WIAS, HZB and the departments of physics and chemistry could see the instruments and understand how they work.
We would like to thank Pablo and Laura, who organized the whole thing again!
13.12.2022: X-mas party for Junior scientists
On 13.12. the young researchers celebrated a Christmas party at a common room in the IRIS research building. In keeping with the occasion, they were also asked science quiz questions related to Christmas, resulting in many interesting conversations. Of course, Christmas music was also not to be missed. Fortified by stollen and mulled wine, they thus celebrated the holiday season and share their love of science with their colleagues and friends.
24.11.2022: First IRIS juniors breakfast and lab tours session
On Nov 21, 2022 the IRIS junior scientists met for a breakfast and a lab tours session focused on quantum optics.
Pablo Hernández López, the juniors representative and organizer, explains: "Our colleagues Elisa & Martin (AG Markus Krutzik) and Julian & Jonas (AG Tim Schröder) showed their labs and introduced their fields of research. This event was the first one of a series of lab tours that will continue next year. Thanks to the presenters and to everyone who came. It was great to meet so many new colleagues and to discover some of the very interesting work done at IRIS Adlershof."
