Congratulations to IQST PI Eva Benckiser | Walter-Schottky-Prize 2019 of the German Physical Society

Eva Benckiser, MPI for Solid State Research Stuttgart and IQST PI, has been awarded the Walter-Schottky-Prize of the German Physical Society for her outstanding contributions to research on complex materials with correlated electrons. By developing x-ray spectroscopic methods she obtained novel insight into the electronic structure of metal-oxide interfaces and created a promising basis for targeted manipulation of their magnetic and transport properties.

The award ceremony will take place during the DPG Spring Conference in Regensburg in March 2019.

Eva Benckiser received her doctorate from the University of Cologne in 2007 and was then a postdoctoral fellow and later group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research. Since 2014 she has headed the Minerva working group "X-ray spectroscopy of oxide heterostructures".
