Annika Bande finished her Habilitation at the Freie Universität Berlin, where she teaches now as a Privatdozent.
Xiangfei Wang, a CSC fellow, arrived from China in the work group. He persues a PhD on the excitation of nanodiamonds.
The group is established as an independent young investigator group "Theory of Electron Dynamics and Spectroscopy" at HZB with Annika Bande as group leader and Pascal Krause as deputy head.
Successful transition to PhD: Thorren Gimm and Fabian Langkabel finished their Master thesis in the summer. Thorren aquired a HEIBRiDs PhD fellowhip and works in the HZB group Simulation of Energy Materials on electron solvation from nanodiamonds. Fabian developes electron dynamics codes for application in quantum computers in the Freigeist project of this group.
The lecture "Reaction Quantum Dynamics" is offered in digital form at the Freie Universität Berlin
2 Fabians in action: Fabian Weber became Dr. rer. nat., congratulations, and Fabian Langkabel started his master thesis work, good luck.
We hosted the QDNano workshop with European and (South-)American partners to launch a cooperative network on Quantum Dynamics on the Nanoscale.
The group was positively evaluated by the Volkswagen Foundataion and got a prolongation of the Freigeist Fellowship by 3 years.
Kanishka Singh started his PhD thesis in the HEIBRiDs graduate school for data science. Good luck!
Yannik Schütze started his doctoral work in cooperation with the Joint Research Group "Simulation of Energy Materials".
Dr. Molle, this was a well done dissertation!
We wish Thorren Gimm good luck with his Master Thesis.
Congratulations Dr. Haller! The first doctoral student obtained her degree.
See you at Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften, June 15, im Zelt "Chemie am Computer" und im Diskussionszelt.
HOT: Matthias Berg contributed the theory on Optical and Vibrational Properties of Thermoelectric SnSe for a work selected as 2019 HOT Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics article.
Understanding the inter-Coulombic electron capture: Axel Molle and cooperation partner Federico Pont from Cordoba (ARG) disentagled and interpreted various process pathways and predict highest prcess rates from basic principles.
Breakthrough: Anika Haller published the first work on the inter-Coulombic decay in self-assembled quantum dots with two-dimensional continuum. We thank our collaboration partner Daniel Pelaez in Lille (FR).
Jakob+Hande+Pascal2: We welcome the bachelor student Pascal Stehling and the postdoc Pascal Krause. Further two student assistants Hande Kordon and Jakob Hein.
Mit vereinten Kräften: Zwei Freigeist-Teams erforschen Nanoteilchen. Der Theorie-Beitrag stammt von Fabian Weber.
A summer in Berlin: We warmly welcome our summer students Aneesh Jonelagadda (Illinois, US), Nikola Kolev (Edinburgh, UK), Viktoria Noel (Oxford, UK), and Nikki Rahnamaei (Toronto, CAN). You'll heat our research!
Annika Bande gave a lecture at FU to open the Habilitation procedure. Anika Haller submitted an article. IMAMPC was a grat success.
Simon Petry is back as Master student (FU, Nanodiamonds) and Joana Schäfer joined in for a Bachelor thesis (HU, Phonons). We wish you exciting research and good results.
Welcome to our guest student Hossam Ibrahim Tohamy from Egypt and to our new group member Fabian Langkabel. Annika is in the local press as "Berliner Weltverbesserer"

Prof. Aliezer Martínez-Mesa (University of Havana) is visiting.
With the new year our team is expanding: Martin Lützner who graduated from Potsdam University became a new PhD student. Essam Radwan from Egypt joins in for a few weeks internship.
PhD candidate Axel Molle gained a Q-Team for interdisciplinary teaching in his PhD project at Humboldt University.
Fabian Weber and Annika Bande gave talks at dynamics conferences in Greifswald and Rostok and have a poster at STC in Bochum. Welcome back Simon Petry, former Bachelor student and current HiWi.
We welcome the PhD student Axel Molle who will investigate ultrafast, long-range energy transfer processes in atomic and molecular clusters with theoretical methods, and our summer student Essam Radwan from Zewail city, Egypt.
Visit from Cuba: the guest professors Aliezer Martínez-Mesa and Llinersy Uranga-Piña from the University of Havana join the theory group for two month to initiate a cooperation on the interplay of metal nanoparticles and quantum dots. The visit of Annika Bande in Cuba will follow next spring.
Freigeist squared: Annika Bande successfully aquired an extension to her Freigeist fellowship for a PhD student to connect to the Freigeist project of Tristan Petit. Together with the PhD candidate Fabian Weber they will look at electron transfer processes between graphene oxide quantum dots and their environment.
Fabian Weber started his theoretical PhD thesis on energy and electron transfer processes in neutral quantum dots. Welcome and good luck!
We welcome the first group members and especially the PhD candidate Anika Haller in the new junior research group on theoretical chemistry and we are looking forward to our joined projects.
Annika Bande has been selected as participant from HZB for the Helmholtz Mentoring Program ""Taking The Lead"
