Despite Covid-19, doctoral graduations continue in our group. We congratulate our colleague Dr. Mohanad Al-Mamoori to his successful doctoral defense (17th November 2020), see a picture here. The title of his PhD thesis is 3D Nanomagnetic Architectures Investigated by micro-Hall Sensors. The thesis was jointly supervised with Prof. Lambert Alff from the Institute for Materials Science at TU Darmstadt. We wish Mohanad all the best for his starting career!

The collaborative research with M.Sc.E. Piros and Prof. L. Alff from TU Darmstadt on the Role of Oxygen defects in forming conductive filaments in Yb2O3-based analog RRAM devices is published in Phys. Rev. Applied and selected as Editor's Suggestion (September 2020).
Start of the Collaborative Research Center SFB-TRR 288 "Elastic Tuning and Response of Electronic Quantum Phases of Matter" (July 2020). The center is funded by the DFG for four years and involves the Goethe-University Frankfurt, Gutenberg-University Mainz, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, and the Max-Plack-Institutes for Polymer Research (Mainz) and Chemical Physics of Solids (Dresden).
The DPG Spring Meeting in Dresden and many other Conferences, Symposia and Workshops had to be canceled due to the current worldwide situation regarding SARS-CoV-2 (corona) virus (March 2020 - ?).
Evaluation of the Collaborative Research Center initiative "Elastic Tuning and Response of Electronic Quantum Phases of Matter" (Frankfurt, Mainz, Karlsruhe and Dresden) by the DFG (January 2020).
