Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize – 2022
Prof. Dr. Peter Hommelhoff has been awarded the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize 2022, Germany’s most important research funding prize, by the German Research Foundation (DFG) alongside other prize winners. The prize is endowed with research funds of 2.5 million euros.
The Ohm Prizes are awarded annually by the Department of Physics for the best theses ranging from bachelor’s theses to doctoral dissertations:
2021 Dr. Christian Heide – dissertation
2021 Urs Häusler – master’s thesis
2018 Jonas Heimerl – master’s thesis
2018 Helene Müller – bachelor thesis
Prizes for the best poster contributions are awarded at many international conferences:
2022 EuroNAAc4 Conference – Stefanie Kraus for “Acceleration of electrons using nanophotonic structures”.
2022 ATTO-VII Conference – Philip Dienstbier for “Tracing sub-cycle electron dynamics in two-color nearfields of nanometric metal tips”.
2022 Center for Nanoscience at LMU Munich (CeNS) – Tobias Boolakee with the Nanoinnovation Award for “A light-field controlled logic gate in a graphene heterojunction”.
2019 5th International Symposium on Synthetic Carbon Allotropes – Christian Heide for “Attosecond charge transfer from a 2D material (graphene) to a 3D material (silicon carbide)”.
2017 Gordon Research Conference on Quantum Control of Light & Matter – Dr. Takuya Higuchi for “Control of quantum mechanical interference effects of electrons in graphene induced by the fast oscillating electromagnetic field of short laser pulses”.
