 +Since 1947, the City of Vienna has been awarding its [[https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Preis_der_Stadt_Wien_für_Naturwissenschaften|Science Prize]].  The list of winners includes such renowned scientists as Lise Meitner, Erwin Schrödinger, and Viktor E. Frankl.  This year the prize goes to Prof. Ulrike Diebold from our Institute of Applied Physics ([[https://www.ots.at/presseaussendung/OTS_20190812_OTS0045/preise-der-stadt-wien-2019|Press release of the city of Vienna (in German)]]).  She was introduced with a short video (in Viennese German).

For his outstanding habilitation thesis, Martin Setvin receives the [[http://www.kardinal-innitzer-fonds.at/preistraeger.html|'Förderpreis des Kardinal Innitzer Studienfonds']], which is awarded annually by the Archbishop of Vienna, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christoph_Schönborn|Cardinal Schönborn]].  Setvin is also a recent recipient of a prestigious GACR EXPRO grant, which supports excellence in fundamental research.  His  project "Ferroelectric Perovskites for Energy Conversion" was funded with 1.3 M Euros. He will use this money to build his research group when he assumes his professorship at [[https://fsv.cuni.cz/en?gclid=Cj0KCQiA2b7uBRDsARIsAEE9XpHOrFl6rjxudiEt0LDxDWUJOk06QsuoLBBKiZnginnLDsXFzObooMMaAjfdEALw_wcB|Charles University]] in Prague.

This summer, three people got even more involved with the surface physics group:  David Rath, who calculated the best configuration for an IRAS setup in his Masters thesis, is back to produce such a setup for real.  Nico Resch starts his Masters thesis working with Gareth on single-atom-catalysis-related things.  And Sebastian Brandstetter is excited to start a Masters thesis within an FFG-funded project joint with the [[http://www.iap.tuwien.ac.at/www/interface/index|Valtiner group]] and [[https://www.berndorfband-group.com/en/|Berndorf Ges.m.b.H]] looking at stainless steel.

  * 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.   * 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]].
