October 2016: PhD students of the solid state institute are organizing a PhD symposium at the DPG spring meeting 2017 on
Quantum Magnets: Frustration and Topology in Experiment and Theory. We are looking forward to meeting you there!
April 2014: The State of Lower
Saxony has granted funding of the
PhD Programme Contacts in Nanosystems, which brings
together the different, but complementary expertises of physicists and
engineers at the three universities in Braunschweig,
Clausthal-Zellerfeld and Hannover joining with the PTB Braunschweig to
achieve a better understanding and control of contact effects in
nanostructures. Starting Feb. 1st 2015, there will
be 15 PhD stipends available.
Brenig, Sasha Chernyshev, and Mike Zhitomirsky will be organizing
the international workshop and seminar on Quantum Spin Dynamics:
From Exotic Excitations to Novel Transport and Non-Equilibrium
Phenomena at the Max-Planck-Institut für Physik
komplexer Systeme in Dresden.
November 2014: The German Science
Foundation (DFG) has established the new Collaborative
Research Center "Correlated Magnetism: from Frustration to
Topology", SFB 1143, hosted by the Technical University
Dresden, the Technical University Bergakademie Freiberg (Sachsen), the
Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research Dresden, the
Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids Dresden, and the
Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems, at the
DRESDEN-concept - an alliance for excellence in research and culture.
Prof. Brenig is a principal investigator within SFB 1143 and a member of its
integrated Platform for Superconductivity and Magnetism
