 +
 +Richard Wilhelm has been appointed as Assistant Professor (tenure track) for
 +"Ion and Plasma Physics" starting on November 1st, 2019. Congratulations, Richard!

 +{{ :atomic:janine_on_radio.jpeg?200|Janine starrs on Radio NJOY 91.3 FM}}
 +
 +2019-Oct-29
 +
 +Today Janine appeared on Radio NJOY 91.3 FM in the programme
 +"WISSENSCHAFTSRADIO - Wissenschaft einfach erklärt". Together with
 +other candidates she had the task of explaining the content of her
 +doctoral thesis in a generally understandable way in just 90 seconds.
 +She managed this outstandingly well.  Congratulations, Janine!
 +
 +You can listen to an audio recording of her presentation [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A1o0nVUUjfc|here]].

 +===== "Escape the Lab" - Challenge for Fritz =====
 +
 +{{ :atomic:surprise_party.jpg?300|Birthday party for Fritz}}
 +
 +2019-Sep-13
 +
 +On the occasion of his 60th birthday, the group had come up with a special surprise for Fritz.
 +The institute director, who only rarely works in his own laboratory anymore,
 +was lured into the lab and locked up there.  In order to escape again, Fritz had to solve
 +a number of extremely difficult tasks (such as repairing lab equipment, programming computers,
 +evaluating data, hard thinking and carrying out heavy manual work).
 +After a lot of sweat he finally managed to open the combination lock and escape. But the
 +real surprise was yet to come. In the new faculty council room not only the members of the working
 +group but also a large number of friends, former graduate students of Fritz and colleagues had gathered
 +to celebrate with him. What a nice surprise party!

 +===== Slow electrons for cancer treatment =====

 +
 +Ion beam radiation therapy uses complicated atomic-physical effects to fight cancer cells. Our group has now identified a new mechanism that directly emits low energy electrons, which are very effective in destroying cancer cells.
 +An effect that has received little attention in this context plays an important role, the so-called "Interatomic Coulomb Decay" (ICD). The result has now been published in the Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters by Janine Schwestka and co-workers.

 +
 +At this week's ICPEAC conference in Deauville, France, Anna recieved the prize for best poster! More than 600 participants were allowed to vote and Anna's poster on 'The role of contaminations on the interaction of highly charged ions with 2D materials' was chosen as the winner. Congratulations, Anna!
