Mail from … Sweden by our Master's student Lars Klingenstein
Lars studies physics with a focus on astrophysics at our faculty and is currently completing the Erasmus+ programme at Stockholm University. He particularly enjoys the subject "Observational Astrophysics" because it is very practice-oriented. For example, on an excursion to the Onsala space observatory near Gothenburg, the students were allowed to operate the telescope themselves on two nights and evaluate the data.
Doctoral student Silvia Müllner on her path towards the limits of the measurable
After studying physics at our faculty, doctoral student Silvia Müllner is currently researching how light couples better to molecules with a special twist. In the TU Magazine, she reports on her work at the Institute of Condensed Matter Physics.
Many greetings from the company partner day of the Braunschweig Technical Academy
On 9 February 2023, Jörgen Jungclaus from the Institute of Semiconductor Technology and Audrey Bode from the Business Office represented our faculty at the Partner Company Day of the Braunschweig Technology Academy.

Interview with Professor Nabeel Aslam
Nabeel Aslam has been a junior professor at the Institute of Condensed Matter Physics since the beginning of October 2022. Most recently, he spent four years at Harvard University researching quantum sensors in diamonds. In the interview, Professor Aslam tells us how he uses individual atoms in the diamond and what inspired him to do science. Have fun reading!
Physics students Bastian Brömer and Ruth Glebe report on their study trip to the karst lakes of the tropical rainforest. Here they are preparing the sonar equipment for the geophysical measurements on Lake Tzibaná. Learn more about the exciting time in Mexico!
Measuring systems for the communication technology of the future
In information technology, the need for fast wireless data communication is growing rapidly. To make speeds of 100 gigabits per second and higher technically possible, a new approach in communications technology is needed. A DFG research group with Prof. Thomas Kürner from the Institute of Communications Engineering as spokesperson is dedicated to this topic.
Prof. Dr. Stefanie Kroker is Physicist of the week 2022
Since January 2018, the Equal Opportunities Working Group (AKC) of the German Physical Society (DPG) has been presenting research by women in physics in Germany and abroad within the "Physikerin der Woche" initiative. In calendar week 45, Prof. Dr. Stefanie Kroker from the Institute of Semiconductor Technology was selected. Her research focuses on micro- and nanophotonic structures that enable light control at scales down to a few nanometers.
The cooperation between TU Braunschweig and Keio University in Tokyo continued to gain momentum over the summer. First, Professor Vadim Issakov travelled to Japan and lectured on analogue integrated circuits in biomedicine. This was followed by a workshop on “Next Generation Quantum Computing”, which mainly brought together researchers from the Japanese quantum computing programme with those from Quantum Valley Lower Saxony. Finally, Japanese Professor Hiroki Ishikuro returned the visit with a guest lecture in Braunschweig. From enthusiastic students to new cooperation options to exploring Japanese culture: after his German-Japanese summer, Professor Vadim Issakov is positively brimming with impressions.

"Deep Neural Networks and Data for Automated Driving" online
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Tim Fingscheidt from the Institute for Communications Technology, together with Hanno Gottschalk from the University of Wuppertal and Sebastian Houben from the Fraunhofer Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems, has published an open access Springer book on automated driving with a focus on "Artificial Intelligence and Data".
This book addresses readers from both academia and industry, since it is written by authors from both academia and industry. Accordingly, it takes on diverse viewing angles, but keeps a clear focus on machine-learned environment perception in autonomous vehicles. Special interest is on deep neural networks themselves, their robustness and uncertainty awareness, the data they are trained on, and, last but not least, on safety aspects. The book is also special in its structure. While a first part is an extensive survey of literature in the field, the second part consists of 14 chapters, each detailing a particular aspect in the area of interest.
At the annual meeting of the German Geophysical Society (DGG), IGEP members received a downpour of awards. We congratulate Madhuri and her co-authors Andreas Hördt, Johannes Hoppenbrock and Jan Mudler for this award!
