Poster Awards at SHIM 2015



During the International Symposium SHIM 2015, organized by the Materials Research department of GSI, Julian Amani (University Göttingen), Florian Meinerzhagen (University Duisburg-Essen), Jacob Shamblin (University Tennessee) und Anne Spende (TU Darmstadt) received special awards for the best science posters presented. The award is endowed by Pantechnik with 100 Euro each.

The conference, which took place in Darmstadt from 18 to 21 May, brought together almost 180 scientists from more than 20 countries. During four days the participants discussed novel insights into the complex processes occurring when high-energy ions interact with matter. The program covered basic and applied research including topics such as radiation effects in many different solids, beam-induced material modifications, radiation biology, as well as nanotechnology, atomic physics, and plasma physics with ion beams. At the occasion of his 85th birthday, Professor Kurt Schwartz (GSI) was honored in recognition of his outstanding scientific work and lifetime achievements in radiation physics. The conference is organized by the Materials Research department of GSI.
