Prof. Claus Ropers und Dr. Sascha Schäfer wurden je mit dem "Sonderpreis" des Stiftungsrates der Georg-August-Universität ausgezeichnet
Der Stiftungsrat der Georg-August-Universität Göttingen Stiftung Öffentlichen Rechts hat auch in diesem Jahr wieder Mitglieder der Georgia Augusta für besondere universitäre Aktivitäten und Leistungen ausgezeichnet.
Prof. Dr. Claus Ropers und Dr. Sascha Schäfer vom IV. Physikalischen Institut erhielten die "Sonderpreise" für ihre herausragenden Beiträge zur Entwicklung ultraschneller Transmissions-Elektronenmikroskopie (UTEM). Beide haben in den vergangenen Jahren international vielbeachtete Arbeit geleistet, die zur Etablierung zeitaufgelöster Elektronenmikroskopie mit bisher unerreichter Qualität geführt hat. Aus diesen Entwicklungen leiten sich weltweit herausragende experimentelle Möglichkeiten in der zeitaufgelösten Spektroskopie und Mikroskopie mit ultrakurzen Elektronenpulsen ab. Der SFB 755 gratuliert ganz herzlich zu diesen Auszeichnungen.
