2nd Joint Meeting of the Young Crystallographers and Young Crystal Growers at the TU Bergakademie Freiberg
Between the 3rd and the 5th of October, the young crystallographers and young crystal growers met at their second joint meeting at the TU Bergakademie Freiberg. On Monday the event began with a relaxed BBQ, followed by a day filled with academic and industry talks including well prepared lightning talks by the poster authors. The lively afternoon poster session was followed by two more talks and a tour of the newly built Center for Efficient High Temperature Processes and Materials Conversion (ZeHS).
We spent Tuesday evening first with a tour through the amazing Terra Mineralia museum and finished the day with a delicious dinner in one of the exhibition halls. Wednesday began with a second round of excellent lightning talks and poster session before transferring to the Freiberg Compound Materials (FCM) campus. People from FCM offered an exciting tour through their manufacturing halls which was already followed by the closing of the meeting.
During the closing we had the pleasure of handing out three STOE poster prizes to Florian Meurer, Maik Förste and Max Stöber. Their posters had the following titles:
- Florian Meurer: “The refinement of anomalous dispersion parameters in small molecule single-crystal X-ray diffraction Experiments.”
- Maik Förste: “Lattice plane buckling as a relaxation mechanism during HTVPE GaN growth.”
- Max Stöber: “Crystallization of Thin Film Layers via Flash Lamp Annealing.”
We congratulate the prize winners and look forward to the next meeting of the young crystallographers and young crystal growers.
