 +===== Honza ======

 +
 +2019-May-29
 +{{  :surface:news:honza_defense.jpg?150|}}
 +  * Jan Hulva, aka Honza, defends his PhD thesis "Studies of Adsorptionon Magnetite (001) Using Molecular Beams".  Prof. Hajo Freund from the Fritz Haber Institute in Berlin acts as the external examiner.  From Honza's extensive body of results we learn a lot about single atom catalysis - his thesis is truly something to be proud of.  Congratulations!

 +===== Triple Defense!!! ======
 +{{  :surface:news:doctores.jpg?200|Drs. Gloss, Pavelec, and Lackner}}
 +
 +2019-Apr-29
 +
 +  * Jonas Gloss, Jiri Pavelec, and Peter Lackner successfully defend their PhD theses entitled, respectively, "Metastable iron-nickel thin films", "Surface chemistry setup and adsorption of CO<sub>2</sub> on Fe<sub>3</sub>O<sub>4</sub>(001)", and "Surface science studies on zirconia thin-film model systems".  They shine during the defense, and even more so afterwards.  Congratulations!

 +===== How to be precise ======
 + {{  :surface:news:esfigure.png?200|Editor's Choice TOC}}
 +
 +2019-Apr-26
 +
 +  * Our paper [[https://journals.aps.org/prmaterials/abstract/10.1103/PhysRevMaterials.3.043802|"Pushing the detection of cation nonstoichiometry to the limit"]] by Michele Riva et al. appears in Physical Review Materials, where it is  featured as [[https://journals.aps.org/prmaterials/|Editor's Suggestion]]. We show how one can use STM to detect minute changes in the composition of complex oxide materials. By quantitatively evaluating surface structures of SrTiO<sub>3</sub>(110), and exploiting their exquisite sensitivity to stoichiometry changes, we can determine the composition of the deposited material with a sensitivity of 0.1%, at least ten times better than other customary techniques.

 +
 +2019-Apr-24
 +
 +  * For a change the weather is nice as we head out to our favorite [[https://www.google.at/maps/place/Grillplatz+11/@48.2132744,16.4302204,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x476d072ddbff1133:0x9036440f27e85006!8m2!3d48.2132708!4d16.4324144?hl=de|BBQ place]] at Donauinsel.  This time we are joined by our friends from Sweden, [[https://www.lunduniversity.lu.se/lucat/user/625530acaa8ccd1974a5663a6a878f65|Edvin Lundgren]] and [[http://forskning.mah.se/en/id/ai6698|Lindsay Merte]], who came to take advantage of the cool capabilities of our q+ AFM.

 +
 +2019-Apr-15
 +
 +  * Michele Riva assumes his new duties as senior scientist.  He will spearhead our efforts in the epitaxial growth of complex metal oxides, and support the surface physics group and IAP. Congratulations, Michele!

 +===== International Brain Circulation ======
 +
 +{{  :surface:news:brain_circulation.png?200|}}
 +2019-Jan-Feb-Mar
 +
 +  * 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.
