On November 20, Dr. Franziska Muckel will be honored for her outstanding dissertation. She is awarded this year's doctoral prize by the Rhine-Ruhr Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers' Association (VDE). She received her doctorate in March 2019 from the UDE in the working group of Prof. Gerd Bacher.

Muckel's dissertation was entitled "Magnetically doped semiconductor quantum dots from solvent-based production: from functionality to device". She is currently doing postdoctoral research at the University of Seattle in Washington.

Speaker at the award ceremony will be Prof. Dr. Oliver Ambacher, Director of the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid State Physics in Freiburg. Muckel will present her doctoral thesis following the keynote lecture on "Quantum Metrology".

The award ceremony will take place at 16:30 in the Gerhard Mercator House on the Duisburg campus.

The VDE PhD Prize is awarded for special doctoral achievements in electrical engineering, electronics, information technology or computer science and in complementary technologies and sciences. It has been awarded annually by VDE Rhein-Ruhr since 1992.

Registrations for the participation in the award ceremony are possible by Mail until 8.11. to petra.merker@uni-due.de
