The Association of Friends of Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin awarded during the Seventh Joint BER II and BESSY II User Meeting on 10 December 2015 the 25th Ernst Eckhard Koch Prize for outstanding doctoral theses in the field of research with synchrotron radiation:

Dr. Robert Streubel, who has since become a postdoc at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, was honored for his doctoral dissertation entitled “Imaging Spin Textures on Curved Magnetic Surfaces” at Technische Universität Chemnitz that dealt with the investigation of three-dimensional magnetic structures by a new combination of X-ray absorption tomography und photoemission microscopy. The measurements were performed at BESSY II and at the ALS using circularly polarized synchrotron radiation within the framework of research projects of the Leibniz-Institut für Festkörper- und Werkstoffforschung Dresden. Part of the well noticed results have already been published in Nature Communications.
