Helmut Schultheiß receives national award for solid state physics
Our alumnus Dr. Helmut Schultheiß was recently announced to receive the Walter Schottky-Medal 2017 of the Deutschen Physikalische Gesellschaft (DPG). The award for condensed matter physics will be handed over on the occasion of the DPG spring meeting in March 2017. Helmut receives this prestigious award for his fundamental research about understanding spin wave propagation in nano structures and their application in new functional devices for transport and logic processing of information. Helmut finished his Ph.D. with our group in 2010. After doing a postdoc at Argonne National Laboratory he is now heading an Emmy Noether research group at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf.
We wish him our very best congratulations!
