From April 14th until April 16th 2015 the International Conference on Frontiers of Characterization and Metrology for Nanoelectronics (FCMN) was held in the Hilton hotel in Dresden. The conference was co-organized by cfaed's technology platform Dresden Center for Nanoanalysis (DCN). It focused on the characterization technology needed for nanoelectronic materials and device research, development, and manufacturing. In total 141 people from 11 countries participated in the meeting, among others from Germany, the USA, Japan and Korea. The tours to the state-of-the-art metrology facilities at Global Foundries and Fraunhofer IPMS-CNT attracted much attention.Directly following this meeting, the 3rd Dresden Nanoanalysis Symposium was held on Friday April 17th. It was organized by DCN in cooperation with the Dresden Fraunhofer Cluster Nanoanalysis. A total of 81 attendees joined to listen to a variety of talks, from fundamental research to the industrial perspective. The winner of the poster competition was Sebastian Schneider from IFW Dresden with the Poster “Exploring the properties of individual nanomagnets: EMCD on FePt nanocubes”.

In April 2015 cfaed will have the pleasure to welcome another Research Group Leader. Pramod Bhatotia is going to build up the Research Group “Parallel and Distributed Systems” as a part of the Cluster Research Areas “Resilience” and “Orchestration”. The 29-year-old Indian just recently this month gained his doctor’s degree –with summa cum laude- at the University of Saarland, where he had submitted his doctoral thesis on the topic of “Incremental parallel and distributed systems”. As a doctoral student he had been working for the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems Kaiserslautern/Saarbrücken. Already in this time he had research contacts to high-ranking institutes such as Bell Labs, Microsoft Research and IBM Research.Central topic of his scientific work is incremental calculation. He focuses on the partial reutilization of former results to accelerate the anew calculation of results for new input values. What makes this approach interesting for cfaed, is, that it can be used to improve performance, energy efficiency and resilience. The increase of resilience through the partial reutilization of former results in combination with the cloud approaches, that were examined, too, could lead to new foundations for resilient calculations.
In mid-April, the building work for new laboratories and seminar rooms of cfaed began. Construction work of the extension to today’s South wing of the Barkhausen Building at TUD campus will last until the end of 2017. The project is led by the Saxon state company Sächsisches Immobilien- und Baumanagement (SIB) and financed with € 35 million by the Saxon State government. The installation of highly responsive, nanoelectronic and oscillation-sensitive measuring instruments will be the particular challenge for the civil engineers. This equipment will later be operated by cfaed's metrology platform Dresden Center for Nanoanalysis (DCN).

During the next few weeks, three Ph.D. students of the Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden (cfaed) will start their research stay abroad within the Cluster's INSPIRE Grants program.Jana Kalbacova (Semiconductor Physics Research Group, TU Chemnitz) received a grant for a two-month stay at the "National Institute of Standards and Technology Semiconductor and Dimensional Metrology Division" in Maryland/ USA.Tim Erdmann (Leibniz Institute for Polymer Research Dresden) will join the Polyera Cooperation and the Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois/ USA. During his stay, he will be supervised by Professor Antonio Facchetti, founder of the Polyera Cooperation and Adjunct Professor of Chemistry at the NU.Susanne Leubner from Eychmüller Group (Chair for Physical Chemistry) was granted to carry out a three-month stay at "The Biodesign Institute" of Arizona State University in Tempe, USA. She will work within the "Yan Lab". Her goal is to design and realize nanometer-sized template structures made of DNA for the precise assembly of nanoparticles to produce nanophotonic hybrid structures. This short-term project aims for the realization of switchable architectures.
The cfaed INSPIRE Grants aim at supporting a lively scientific exchange by facilitating research stays abroad. Young researchers thus may benefit from this program by gaining and/ or fostering international research experience as well we getting inspirations for new research approaches and topics. Furthermore, not only the awardee but also cfaed as a cluster will benefit from enhancing our visibility within the international science community.
