Spin+X PhD student Dennis Nenno wins award for his master thesis
Whether a talent can unfold depends not only on “whether opportunities are offered, but also whether these are taken" said Kai Landes, member of the Board of the Kreissparkasse Kaiserslautern, during the award ceremony of the "Kreissparkassen-Stiftung für die Technische Universität Kaiserslautern" on June 13th. "You all showed that you want to be successful with your talents, ideas and concepts", he reaffirmed the award winners.
At the 33rd prize award ceremony, seven young scientists from the University of Kaiserslautern were recognized, whose master or diploma thesis were of outstanding quality. Among the laureates was Spin+X PhD Dennis Nenno from the Kaiserslautern Department of Physics. His thesis focused on transport theory of hot electrons in metals and ultrafast magnetism. After optical excitation with an ultrashort laser pulse properties of metals, such as magnetism, can be modified or controlled. The findings which were supervised by Spin+X PI Prof. Hans Christian Schneider might be helpful for future data storage devices.
Because Dennis Nenno and his supervisor Sare both currently on a research visit in Tucson, Arizona, Spin+X PI Prof. Bärbel Rethfeld held the laudation and Dominik Linzner accepted the prize at the award ceremony.
