Prof. Michael Steiner is the new chairman of ENSA

The former scientific director of HMI (1998 bis 2008), Prof. Michael Steiner, is the new chairman of the European Neutron Scattering Association (ENSA). ENSA is an affiliation of the national neutron scattering societies which directly represent about 4500 european neutron scatterers. In his first words Michael Steiner argues: “It is very important for the future of the field to recruit in a sustainable fashion young scientists and to ensure that the continuously improving potential of neutron scattering does reach research areas, which have not been using neutron up to now.” ENSA would be the right platform for coordinated and coherent actions on a European scale. Steiner continues: “The new challenge for ENSA will be to extend the present discussion about existing sources and the interplay between large and small facilities to a forward looking vision for neutrons inEuropenow, when ESS is at the horizon.”

    Humboldt Fellow Alexander Gray comes to HZB
    Alexander Gray from Temple University in Philadelphia, USA, is working with HZB physicist Florian Kronast to investigate novel 2D quantum materials at BESSY II. With the fellowship from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, he can now deepen this cooperation. At BESSY II, he wants to further develop depth-resolved X-ray microscopic and spectroscopic methods in order to investigate 2D quantum materials and devices for new information technologies even more thoroughly.

    Young investigator research group on electrocatalysis at HZB
    Dr. Michelle Browne establishes her own young investigator group at the HZB . Starting in August, the group is co-funded by the Helmholtz Association for the next five years. The electrochemist from Ireland concentrates on electrolytically active novel material systems and wants to develop next-generation electrocatalysts, for example hydrogen production. At HZB she will find the perfect environment to conduct her research.
