HZB expert contributes to Leibniz platform GraFOx

The platform "GraFOx" of the Leibniz Association bundles the activities and competences of Berlin research institutes and universities in the field of oxide research for electronic applications. Now Prof. Dr. Catherine Dubourdieu has been involved as an Associate Partner. The internationally renowned expert heads the Institute "Functional Oxides for Energy-Efficient Information Technology" at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin.

The Leibniz ScienceCampus GraFOx offers a platform for the exchange of knowledge and the coordination of activities with the aim of gaining fundamental understanding on key issues and of developing novel applications for oxides. GraFOx stands for "Growth and Fundamentals of Oxides (GraFOx) for electronic applications". Catherine Dubourdieu will contribute her many years of experience with multifunctional perovskites including their integration on semiconductors.

    Marcus Bär accepts W2 professorship for X-ray spectroscopy in Erlangen-Nuremberg

    Prof. Marcus Bär has accepted a professorship for X-ray spectroscopy at the Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU). Bär heads the Department of Interface Design at Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB). The new W2 professorship was established in cooperation with HZB and Forschungszentrum Jülich in order to strengthen the Helmholtz-Institute Erlangen-Nürnberg für Renewable Energy (HI ERN). In the future, Bär will also be working on HI ERN research topics at HZB, thereby contributing to the intensification of cooperation. [...]
