Prof. Dr. Stefanie Kroker is Physicist of the week 2022

Prof. Dr. Stefanie Kroker

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.

Professor Vadim Issakov visiting Tokyo

Mitten in Tokio: Professor Vadim Issakov erkundet nach seiner Gastvorlesung die Stadt.

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

Information Theory, Mathematical Optimization, and Their Crossroads in 6G System Design

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 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.
