 +  * Lots of coming and going in the surface physics group during the past few months: Jian Xu (a) returns to his [[http://study.cqu.edu.cn/HOME.htm|home university in Chongqing, China]]. Zhiyu Zou (b) assumes a post-doc position at the [[http://www.ufl.edu|University of Florida]].  Sebastian (c) takes off a week from his high-school studies to check out the lab live of physicists.  Jakub Holobrádek (d) from [[https://www.vutbr.cz/en/?aid_redir=1|TU Brno]] starts his Erasmus work with us, and so does Martin Štubian (e) and Radek Caesar (sorry, no picture available).  Amy Brandt (f) from the [[https://www.sc.edu|University of South Carolina]] visits us for three months, and Manuel Ulreich (f) from Austria starts his Masters thesis work.  It is great to welcome so many fresh faces, and we bid our outgoing colleagues a heartfelt farewell.

 +
 +  * Together with our [[https://homepage.univie.ac.at/cesare.franchini/|DFT friends at Uni Wien, Michele Reticcioli and Cesare Franchini]], we publish our findings that polarons can localise on CO molecules adsorbed on TiO<sub>2</sub>(110).  The editors of Physical Review Letters like our paper and feature it as 'editor's choice'.

 +  * Every year a different working group organizes the Institute's Christmas party. This year the [[https://biophysics.iap.tuwien.ac.at/home/|Schütz biophysics group]] came up with a special task:  To re-create a famous painting, in the fine tradition of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tableau_vivant|tablau vivant]]. We have a lot of fun mimicking [[https://www.britannica.com/topic/Liberty-Leading-the-People|Lady Liberty]],  but our efforts are not good enough to win the coveted top prize.

-* With great sadness we announce that our colleague [[:surface:group:varga:|Peter Varga]] has passed on October 27, 2018.  Peter Varga was the founder and longtime head of the Surface Physics Group at the Institute of Applied Physics (IAP), and he shaped it into one of world's leading centers of surface physics. Having retired as Professor at the TU Wien in 2011, he nevertheless remained an active member of our group and also kept contact with our friends in Brno where he had a "PostProf" position at [[http://www.ceitec.eu/|CEITEC]]. +  * With great sadness we announce that our colleague [[:surface:group:varga:|Peter Varga]] has passed on October 27, 2018.  Peter Varga was the founder and longtime head of the Surface Physics Group at the Institute of Applied Physics (IAP), and he shaped it into one of world's leading centers of surface physics.
