WiNS Remote Workshop: Dr. Sabine Blackmore - "Developing a Growth Mindset-How Our Thoughts Help Us to Succeed"
Our self-communication and mindset belong to the most important factors for success. Beliefs like “I can’t write this thesis, I’m not good enough” or “I will never reach a professorship, I’m simply not smart/confident enough” block the necessary energy to believe in ourselves and often point to a fixed mindset, which prevents usfrom accepting and even looking forward to challenges and growth. A fixed mindset might (re)confirm our beliefs about ourselves, a growth mindset, however, might challenge our beliefs and, thus, gives us the opportunity to let go of unhelpful und unproductive ideas of who we are, how well we work and of what we think we can achieve. This workshop builds on the ideas and techniques of positive psychology and deepens your knowledge and competences to regulate and coach your emotions and beliefs about yourself as well as your research work.
  • When: November 5th,  9:30am - 1:30 pm and November 13th, 1pm - 5pm
  • Target Group: female PhD students and postdocs
  • Maximum number of participants: 12
  • Content: 
    • What is “mindset”?
    • Fixed vs. growth mindset
    • The power of mindset in challenging times
    • Open yourself to growth
  • About the trainer: Dr. Sabine Blackmore who holds a doctorate in English Literature is an experienced academic as well as a former gender equality officer. As a coach, she focuses on young and established academics as well as university employees and teams (especially in gender equality). The topics of her trainings and workshops range from career trainings, gender equality workshops (e.g. working with resistances), to topics about personal development. (

"Der Wert der Biodiversität - Konsequenzen & Praxis" 

Im 21. Jahrhundert sterben Tierarten um ein vielfaches schneller aus als vor Beginn der Industrialisierung. Der Grund: menschliche Aktivitäten. Wir befinden uns in einer Biodiversitätskrise. Doch was bedeutet Biodiversität eigentlich? Braucht der Mensch Biodiversiät? Und hat Biodiversität auch einen Eigenwert? Im Vortrag werde ich diese Fragen beantworten, über die Konsequenzen sprechen, die sich aus der Biodiversitätskrise ergeben und wie man sich wissenschaftlich damit auseinandersetzt.

Sensing with Quantum Light 2020

As a successor to last year’s Workshop on “Sensing with Quantum Light” – SQL19, the Department of Physics and IRIS Adlershof, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and the organization commitee are proud to announce the continuation of this Series with the workshop “Sensing with Quantum Light 2020” – SQL20. It will take place as a hybrid- conference (simultaneously online & in real-life near Berlin) from Sunday, Sept. 6th  to  Wednesday, Sept. 9th, 2020.

The ability to prepare, manipulate and measure quantum states of light has seen dramatic advances in the last decades, and has been at the forefront of demonstrating and utilizing phenomena such as such as quantum entanglement, and quantum superposition and squeezed light. They are expected to revolutionize a wide range of fields and to form an important the basis for the so-called “second generation” quantum technologies. The area of quantum sensing is expected to be among the first areas to deliver real-world applications and products.

Sensing with classical light in the form of imaging, microscopy, spectroscopy and interferometric methods has always played an enormous role. Sensing with quantum light aims at utilizing the properties of quantum optical states to overcome classical and technological limitations, for example with respect to resolution or sensitivity or by offering new measurement modalities, for example by linking different wavelength regions.

The workshop aims at covering a broad range of theoretical and experimental aspects of sensing with quantum light, offering for forum for both fundamental aspects and applications.

Topics will include:

  • quantum light for imaging applications
  • spectroscopy with quantum light
  • squeezed light for noise reduction
  • sensing with nonlinear interferometers
  • generation of highly non-degenerate photons
  • high-dimensional entangled states for sensing
  • sensing with quantum light at “extreme” wavelengths
  • new quantum sensing modalities with light

The program of the workshop will consist of invited and regular talks, short talks replacing poster sessions, a panel discussion, as well as as social events. All events will be made available as a suitable online format.

Financially supported by the DFG, the workshop aims at providing a vibrant forum for the exchange of ideas and discussion by bringing together established scientists from leading research groups in the field, junior scientists and graduate students, participants from fundamental and applied physics and industry.

WiNS Workshop: Dr. Jane Bormeister - "Body, voice and speech training"
Science needs presenters who present their scientific results in a self-confident manner. Buthow do I orally bring my content across in a convincing manner? How do I control my voice?How do I stand? Howdo I move, and how can I have fun when speaking in front of anaudience? In addition to content-related competence and subject-matter knowledge, the wayof speaking is of particular importance: contents are conveyed through people.When presenting, it is hardly ever the content that counts the most but the way of HOW youbring the content across to the listener. This requires professional rhetoric skills. How you speak, how you talk, how you convince: you will present orally. Nevertheless, the content remains the prerequisite for a good presentation. Only what comes across will be there.

Presenting your Research Effectively and Attractively
"Most scientists lack the business know-how and literacy to effectively communicate with funders. I’d very much like to see that every single researcher is able to deliver an "elevator pitch" on how their research impacts society."
    Michael J. Bojdys

The Problem. In an increasingly information connected world, an understanding of scientific facts and engagement with the scientific community is more and more necessary. The scientist’s ability to effectively communicate their work and engage with the public is equally imperative. Professional academics and students often struggle to see the “big picture” and the impact of their work on society, and lack the tools to effectively communicate their work to policy makers, funders and the general public.

The Solution. The “Presenting Your Research Effectively and Attractively” Workshop is a response to this. This workshop will provide professional academics and students with an in-depth science communication training and give them opportunity to create content and material for public engagement. The objectives are to (a) give scientists practical tools and methodologies for future science communication activities, (b) empower them in future exchanges with non-scientists, and (c) build content as a community and bridge the divide between science and the public.

Who is this workshop for? The workshop is open to any scientist or student of the Berlin University Alliance interested in improving their science-communication and improvisation skills. The workshop provides participants with tools and insights into how to effectively communicate scientific results, and what kind of outlets (articles, videos, podcasts) are available to them to reach the desired target audience.

HoW exciting! Workshop on excitations in solids
HoW exciting! 2018 consists of two closely related events, a hands-on tutorial and an international workshop about excitations in solids.

Hands-on tutorial on excitations in solids (July 31 - August 5, 2018)

This tutorial offers young scientists the opportunity to practice with hands-on exercises with the software package exciting. These exercises will guide participants through the topics addressed in the subsequent workshop: From the basics of DFT to advanced topics, such as time-dependent DFT and many-body perturbation theory, as well as to their applications to real materials.

Workshop on excitations in solids (August 6-9, 2018)

Excitations in solids are among the most exciting phenomena in condensed-matter physics. In this context, the electronic-structure approach within density-functional theory (DFT) is the first level in a hierarchical set of models which are needed to quantitatively describe and understand these phenomena in real materials. The relationship of the different computational techniques and domains of applicability is still a challenging task. At the same time, advances in theoretical and computational methods go hand in hand with the progresses in experimental techniques.

Berlin Long Night of the Sciences 2018: The Cube of Physics

Can one represent the entire knowledge of physics in terms of a cube? Does physics consist of eight `theories’ and six ‘worlds’ that respectively correspond to the corners and surfaces of a cube? May the cube even contain the key to the Theory of Everything? An exhibition of the Department of Physics in cooperation with the Department of Cultural History and Theory addresses these questions (#cubeofphysics). Based on the idea of projecting the corners of a cube onto the triangular surfaces of an octahedron, this exhibition presents an expansive art installation in the foyer of the Department of Physics. The connections between cube, octahedron, physical theories, worlds, and fundamental constants may be explored in an interactive installation, in which visitors take the cube of physics into their own hands.
