No resistance at room temperature: The resonant excitation of oxygen  oscillations (blurred) between CuO2  double layers (grey, Cu light blue, O red) with short light pulses  leads to the atoms in the crystal lattice  briefly shifting away from their  equilibrium positions. This shift brings  about an increase in the separations of  CuO2 layers within a double layer and a  simultaneous decrease in the  separations between double layers. It is  highly probable that this enhances the superconductivity. Zoom Image

Reimar-Lüst-Fellowship of the MPG for Roman Mankowsky

June 27, 2017

For his dissertation, "Nonlinear phononics and structural control of strongly correlated materials", Roman Mankowsky, a member of  the Quantum Condensed Matter Dynamics group from Andrea Cavalleri, has been awarded  with the Max Planck Society's Reimar Lüst Fellowship at the ‘General Meeting’ of the Max Planck Society in Weimar.

With the postdoctoral fellowship, Roman will continue his research on the control of ferroelectrics on femtosecond time scales at the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg.

Reimar-Lüst-Fellowship:
The Reimar Lüst Fellowship is financed by a foundation that was created in 1983 on the occasion of the 60th birthday of Reimar Lüst, a former president of the Max Planck Society. The foundation's endowment consists of donations from German companies. The foundation fosters junior scientists via the two-year Reimar Lüst Fellowship, which is awarded annually.
