Physikerin der Woche - 2019

Seit Januar 2018 stellen wir Ihnen wöchentlich eine Physikerin in einem kurzen Bericht vor. Möchten Sie selbst Ihr Forschungsgebiet vorstellen oder wollen Sie eine Physikerin in Deutschland oder eine deutsche Physikerin im Ausland (Bachelorstudentin, Masterstudentin, Doktorandin, Postdoktorandin, Gruppenleiterin, Professorin - Physikerinnen aller Karrierestufen können sich beteiligen) für unser Physikerin der Woche Projekt vorschlagen, dann kontaktieren Sie bitte Frau Dr. Ulrike Boehm (boehm at akc.dpg-physik.de). Einen Artikel über unsere Aktion in der Aprilausgabe 2018 des Physik-Journals finden Sie hier

Im letzten Jahr haben wir 52 Physikerinnen hervorgehoben. Auch in diesem Jahr setzen wir unser Projekt fort. Alle 52 Teilnehmerinnen aus 2018 finden sie hier!

In diesem Jahr werden wir neben Physikerinnen an Universitäten und Forschungseinrichtungen, auch Physikerinnen aus der Industrie vorstellen.  


Jun.-Prof. Heike Kalesse (Leipzig) - Kalenderwoche 3

Junior-Professor Heike Kalesse is leading the working group “Remote Sensing and the Arctic System” at the Leipzig Institute for Meteorology (LIM) at Leipzig University. Her research focuses on combining ground-based remote sensing instruments to get comprehensive profile information on temperature, clouds, precipitation, and wind. She uses these observations to develop atmospheric retrieval algorithms. She loves clouds and field-work and will be participating in atmospheric field experiments around the globe, for example in Southern Chile, the Caribbean, and the Arctic Ocean. She finds sharing her knowledge on clouds and climate with the general public and especially children very important.

Dr. Karin Everschor-Sitte (Mainz) - Kalenderwoche 2

Karin is the head of the Emmy-Noether group TWIST – Topological Whirls in SpinTronics at the University of Mainz. Within the TWIST Group they investigate the complex fundamental physics of topologically protected magnetic structures — skyrmions. In particular, they study the interplay between skyrmions, different magnetic structures, and spin and charge currents. This interplay is governed by microscopic mechanisms within complex materials that must also be understood and engineered. Gaining a deeper understanding of these mechanisms to optimally utilize the properties of skyrmions towards potential spintronics applications is a key focus of their work. Karin was awarded with the Hertha Sponer Prize 2018 of the German Physical Society.

Dr. Eva Benckiser (Stuttgart) - Kalenderwoche 1

Eva Benckiser is a research group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart, Germany. Her research focuses on the study of strongly correlated transition-metal oxide heterostructures. These materials show many technologically interesting phases, such as high-temperature superconductivity or multiferroicity. In bulk form, however, these phases are often difficult to access. The goal of Eva's research is to gain fundamental understanding of heteroepitaxy-induced spin, charge, orbital, and lattice reconstructions, ultimately enabling a targeted design of new functional materials for future electronic devices. Recently, she was awarded with the Walter Schottky Prize 2019 of the German Physical Society.
