08.08.2022 "Integrability, dualities and deformations" conference at IRIS Adlershof

Last week the second edition of the conference "Integrability, dualities and deformations" took place at IRIS Adlershof. This conference brought together 75 expert theoretical physicists working on integrable models, worldsheet dualities, non-commutative field theory, and the gauge/gravity correspondence, to discuss the latest developments in their fields, find new connections between these related areas, and share exciting insights. In addition to 18 great talks, you could find participants excitedly discussing their computations in various spots around and in front of the IRIS building until late each day. The talks were also livestreamed to YouTube, and recordings of the individual talks will be made available in the coming weeks.

02.08.2022"Modeling Materials at Realistic time Scales via Optimal Exploitation of Exascale Computers and Artificial Intelligence" Workshop and Hands-on Tutorial successfully completed

Prof. Matthias Scheffler opens the joint workshop and hands-on tutorial

During the week of 25-29 July, the successful workshop and hands-on tutorial on Modeling Materials at Realistic time Scales via Optimal Exploitation of Exascale Computers and Artificial Intelligence took place. The event was hosted by IRIS Adlershof and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and was a collaboration between them and the Pritzker School of the University of Chicago, CECAM, NOMAD, ECAM and MICCOM.

During the first three days from 25 to 27 July, leading experts from various fields gave talks on computational applications and related artificial intelligence methods in relation to advances in materials science. On the evenings of 25 and 26 July, there were dinners with poster sessions for further scientific and collective exchange. The afternoon of 27 July was followed by an excursion to a graffiti tour at Teufelsberg followed by dinner.
The 28th and 29th of July were then used for tutorials with hands-on examples focusing on the simulation of molecular dynamics.

01.08.2022Dr. Sven Rammelow was awarded an Eistein Junior Fellowship

The experimental physicist and head of the Emmy Noether junior research group "Nonlinear Quantum Optics", Dr. Sven Ramelow, is doing research in the project "Sensors with entangled photons in the middle infrared" at IRIS Adlershof and the Department of Physics of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. His approach is based on quantum-based measurements with so-called undetected photons: a new method in which entangled photon pairs are used to collect measurement information in different infrared ranges without using infrared lasers or detectors. The first industry-related applications are already in the development phase with the participation of the researcher.

Sven Ramwlow has now been awarded an Einstein Junior Fellowship by the Einstein Foundation Berlin. We congratulate him warmly and look forward to continued good cooperation.


08.06.2022Oliver Dumele funded by the BMBF project "BattFutur".

Due to its importance for a large number of different fields of application, such as electromobility, stationary energy storage, household appliances and high-performance tools, battery technology is a key technology for Germany as a business location, which can, for example, contribute to the federal government's obvious climate protection goals.
In order to be able to survive in global competition, the training and further education of young scientists in the field of battery research is necessary. For this purpose, the BMBF launched the “BattFutur” funding program in 2020.

IRIS-member Oliver Dumele will start his grant in this program in July 2022. His research on the synthesis of sustainable organic energy materials will be funded by € 1.62 million.

We wish Oliver Dumele every success in his important research project!
