We wish you all the best for your future.


Master graduation

We congratulate our three master students Dennis Zywitzki, Sebastian Beer and Philipp John for successfully graduating in chemistry in 2017. Dennis and Sebastian will start their PhD within the IMC group while Philipp will begin his PhD studies at CRHEA (Centre de Recherche sur l'Hétéro-Epitaxie et ses Applications) in Nice, France. We wish him the best of luck and a successfull outcome.
