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.
IfN scores triple: Three Springer books in one year
On 21.09.2022, the Springer book "Information Theory, Mathematical Optimization, and Their Crossroads in 6G System Design" with participation of Prof. Jorswieck and Dr. Pin-Hsun Lin from the IuK Group was officially published. Previously, Prof. Kürner and Prof. Fingscheidt had each published a Springer book also during this year, so that in 2022 we can celebrate three Springer books from all groups at the Institute for Communications Technology. A great success!

Deep Learning Lab 2022: Students of our faculty among the winners!
A total of ten teams took on the Deep Learning Lab's task. First place went to Alexander Tank and Sven Brüggemann (both: ELSY) and Morteza Molai (Mechanical Engineering). The additional environmental prize was awarded to Maria Christoph and Lasse Anderes (both: IST) and Leandra Fichtel (Computer Science). Congratulations!
Based on short interviews, members of TU Braunschweig who were the first in their family to attend university introduce themselves. This time: Doro Bischoff, PhD student at the Institute of Geophysics and Extraterrestrial Physics.
Markus Henke, Professor of Electric Drive Systems, as Role Model at TU Braunschweig
The project Role Models: First Generation Academics at Technische Universität Braunschweig makes social diversity at our university visible. By means of short interviews, various members of TU Braunschweig introduce themselves who were the first in their family to study
"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!
Presentation of the Heinrich Buessing Award to Dr. Benedikt Hampel
On February 10, 2022, Dr.-Ing. Benedikt Hampel from the Institute for Electrical Measurement Science and Fundamental Electrical Engineering was presented with the Heinrich Buessing Award by the Braunschweig University Association. Due to the pandemic, the award winners of the year 2020 had to wait until February 2022.
