Opening of the IRIS Research Building
Finally, the grand opening of the IRIS Adlershof research building, jointly financed by the Federal Government, the State of Berlin and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, took place on October 5th, 2022 in the presence of Berlins Senator for Science, Health, Nursing and Equal Opportunities, Ms. Ulrike Gote, and the HU President, Prof. Julia von Blumenthal.
The state-of-the-art research building complex has been created  in the immediate vicinity of the HU Departments of Physics and Chemistry and numerous other innovative institutes and companies. With its laboratory, office and communication areas, it offers optimal conditions for researching and developing hybrid systems for electronics, optoelectronics and photonics as well as for the mathematical physics of space, time and matter.

You can find excerpts from the opening speeches here. A recording of the entire event can be found on Youtube.

IRIS Adlershof movies

As part of the (successful) evaluation in 2021, it was possible to produce a few short films to give an insight into IRIS Adlershof.

IRIS-Adlershof - An overview:

The successful completion and the gradual commissioning of the new IRIS Research Building in late 2020 have been a highlight. The Research Building is dedicated to the research area Hybrid Systems for Optics and Electronics and it improves significantly IRIS Adlershof’s lab facilities and scientific infrastructure:

Humboldt Research Fellow Carlos-Andres Palma  shows, why and how he explores nanographene materials and their phonon properties at IRIS Adlershof:

In September 2020 the mathematical physicist Nichol Furey (U Cambridge), joined IRIS Adlershof as a Freigeist fellow of the Volkswagen Foundation, to study a special number system, the octaves. She would like to prove that the behavior of elementary particles can be predicted using this system:

As an example of successful work with young talents, we present the Research Training Group 2575 Rethinking Quantum Field Theory:

IRIS Adlershof is connecting with many other disciplines such as architecture, art history, psychology, neuroscience, and cultural science. A particular project is the Cube of Physics and its recent extension, the Hypercube of Physics:

Wispers of String Theory

An international meeting of physicists working in the most challenging and abstract field. A good sports commentator can turn you into a fan, likewise we are drawn into this secluded world by the right people: scientists telling about their colleagues- brave, intimate, direct... in whispers.
