INSPIRE Grants Program - cfaed Ph.D. Students start Research Stay Abroad
Published on in NEWS
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.
