A new president for PTB

The post of president of PTB has been refilled. As of 1 January 2012, the physicist Prof. Dr. Joachim Ullrich has taken over this task. Joachim Ullrich left the Max-Planck-Institut für Kernphysik (Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics – MPIK) in Heidelberg for PTB. He took over from Prof. Dr. Ernst O. Göbel, who was in charge of the fate of PTB for over 16 years and was going to retire.


Mathias Richter und Udo Kroth

The Head of Department 7.1 "Radiometry with Synchrotron Radiation", Matthias Richter, and his staff member Udo Kroth have, together with several colleagues from DESY (Hamburg) and the Ioffe Institute (St. Petersburg), won this year's "Innovation Award on Synchrotron Radiation" which was open to scientists from all over Europe. In doing so, the Association of Friends of the Helmholtz-Zentrum für Materialien und Energie (Berlin) has recognized the development work of this research group in the field of X-ray laser diagnostics. The prize is endowed with 3000 euros and was handed over to the scientists on 1 December 2011 in Berlin.
