Dr. Nele Thielemann-Kühn was awarded the dissertation prize of the magnetism research group at the spring conference of the Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft (German physical society/DPG) in Berlin. The prize is awarded for outstanding research in the field of magnetism. 

Dr. Nele Thielemann-Kühn studied ultrafast magnetic dynamics in ferro- and antiferromagnetic dysprosium during her PhD work at the HZB and the University of Potsdam. Her dissertation, mentored at HZB by Dr. Christian Schüßler-Langeheine, included experiments with ultrashort X-ray pulses at BESSY II. She had already received the 2017 Ernst Eckhard Koch Prize for her dissertation and is now continuing research at Freie Universität Berlin.

Results have been published for example in Physical Review Letters (06 November 2017): Ultrafast and energy-efficient quenching of spin order: Antiferromagnetism beats ferromagnetism; Nele Thielemann-Kühn, Daniel Schick, Niko Pontius, Christoph Trabant, Rolf Mitzner, Karsten Holldack, Hartmut Zabel, Alexander Föhlisch, Christian Schüßler-Langeheine

    Atomic displacements in High-Entropy Alloys examined
    High-entropy alloys of 3d metals have intriguing properties that are interesting for applications in the energy sector. An international team at BESSY II has now investigated the local order on an atomic scale in a so-called high-entropy Cantor alloy of chromium, manganese, iron, cobalt and nickel. The results from combined spectroscopic studies and statistical simulations expand the understanding of this group of materials.

    Calculating the "fingerprints" of molecules with artificial intelligence
    With conventional methods, it is extremely time-consuming to calculate the spectral fingerprint of larger molecules. But this is a prerequisite for correctly interpreting experimentally obtained data. Now, a team at HZB has achieved very good results in significantly less time using self-learning graphical neural networks.
