28.06.17: Interview with Werner Hofmann in the "Rhein-Neckar-Zeitung"

In a recent interview with the "Rhein-Neckar-Zeitung", our current managing director at MPIK Heidelberg, Prof. Dr. Werner Hofmann, gives insight into the scientific work at our institute. Werner Hofmann stresses the importance of the development and construction of novel instruments for basic research. His division "Particle Physics and High-Energy Astrophysics" external Link e.g. participates in an international project to build the future CTA telescope system for ground-based gamma-ray astronomy. The novel cryogenic storage ring CSR of our division for investigating properties and interactions of atomic and molecular ions as well as our precision experiments in ion traps for the investigation of matter-antimatter imbalance are also included amongst these successful research activities.
Furthermore, Werner Hofmann addresses the importance of science communication e.g. by public talks at schools or MPIK's "Saturday Morning Physics" and the traditional open day at MPIK.

29.09.16: Klaus Blaum received the Gothenburg Lise Meitner Award 2016
Prof. Klaus Blaum, laureate of the "Gothenburg Lise Meitner Award 2016"

Today, our division director Prof. Klaus Blaum received the Gothenburg Lise Meitner Prize 2016 "for the development of innovative techniques for high-precision measurements of stored radioactive ions" (see also our press release of April 29, 2016). The Gothenburg Lise Meitner Award external Link is awarded annually by the "Gothenburg Physics Centre" to a scientist who made a breakthrough discovery in physics.
The award ceremony took place at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden. During this event, Klaus Blaum held the annual Lise Meitner lecture entitled "Fundamental tests of nature with cooled and stored exotic ions".

We cordially congratulate Klaus Blaum once again on receiving this prestigious scientific award.
