 +===== PhD party with Janine and Reinhard  =====
 +
 +{{ :atomic:group:dsc05771.jpg?300|PhD party}}
 +
 +2020-June-30
 +
 +We simply could not let them go without a big farewell party with hand-crafted doctor's hats! 
 +The relaxation of the corona measures made it possible to toast with real sparkling wine to
 +the successful completion of our newly promoted doctors Janine and Reinhard.
 +May the power of science always be with you!

 +
 +2020-June-25
 +
 +An up-to-date group photo was long overdue! But how do you manage that in times of Covid-19?
 +Of course by taking such a photo in compliance with all safety regulations.

 +===== Grand finale for Janine  =====
 +
 +{{ :atomic:janine_defense.jpg?300|PhD Defense celebration for Janine Schwestka}}
 +
 +2020-May-12
 +
 +With ease Janine Schwestka today defended her dissertation entitled 'On the Charge Exchange Dynamics of Highly Charged Ions in atomically thin solids'.
 +Prof. Marek Pajek and Prof. Pedro L. Grande served as external referees.  Prof. Pajek participated in the examination via video conference.
 +Due to the current "Corona" distancing measures only a part of the group was personally present. The rest celebrated with Janine virtually!
 +Congratulations, Dr. Schwestka!

 +===== First experiments are possible again =====
 +{{  :atomic:christian.jpg?250|Who ist the hero of the first hour behind dthe mask?}}
 +
 +2020-May-04
 +
 +The university is slowly opening up again, and we can start some of our experiments.  No more than half of the group is allowed to be present at any time, distance measures are in place and wearing masks is mandatory.

 +===== Real PhD title for Reinhard despite virtual defense  =====
 +
 +{{ :atomic:stadlmayr_defense.jpg?300|PhD Defense celebration for Reinhard Stadlmayr}}
 +
 +2020-April-03
 +
 +Special times require special measures.  Therefore, today, for the first time, a PhD defense was held via video conference.
 +Candidate Reinhard Stadlmayr did an excellent job and answered the questions of the examination senate consisting of
 +Christian Linsmeier (Professor and Director at the FZ Jülich), Herbert Balasin (Dean of Studies) and Fritz Aumayr
 +(PhD supervisor) with great competence. Special technical measures, such as 2 independent video transmissions of the
 +candidate, were taken to increase the fail safety during the interview. Unfortunately, also the following ceremony for Reinhard by our
 +group had to be held remotely (see foto). But as one can see: even a global crisis could not stop Reinhard from completing his
 +doctorate - a tremendous achievement! Congratulations Dr. Stadlmayr!

 +{{ :atomic:group_meeting.jpg?300|Group meeting via video conference}}
 +
 +2020-March-17
 +
 +As the corona crisis affects our lives worldwide, we too must take a break from experimental work.
 +The safety and well-being of our group members and friends at the university is more important, so we all work from our home offices.
 +Group meetings are held via video conferencing tools.
 +
 +Please stay home and wait for the crisis to pass.

 +
 +Great news! Anna received the Peter Varga Poster Prize at this year‘s [[:3S20:|3S*20]] conference. The poster prize honors excellent young scientists in the field of surface science. It is named after our late colleague Peter Varga, thus it is an even greater pleasure that the prize is back at IAP!
 +Not to forget the award which comes with the prize: the no-friends-on-powder-day-voucher.

 +
 +Every two years, members of our institute organize the legendary [[:3S20:|Symposium on Surface Science 3S]]
 +in St. Christoph am Arlberg, Austria. We discussed and presented cutting
 +edge science (Janine and Paul gave talks, while Anna presented a poster) but also had
 +a great time skiing in the Austrian Alps. More photos can be found
