Lehromat 1000 – MSS supports public schools in teaching under pandemic conditions

For the large group of students in elementary and secondary schools, the government’s response to the spreading Covid-19 pandemic means that classes will be cancelled for long periods of time. An alternative to distance learning is alternate teaching. Here, half of the class is taught at the school, while the other half of the students are taught at home via distance learning. The Lehromat 1000 is a device designed to assist the teacher in alternate teaching. With its help, the non-present students are fully involved in what is happening in the classroom.

BILD reports on publication with MSS contribution

„Surfactants and rotelles in active chiral fluids“ in Science Advances

PhD student Holger Götz joined MSS

He will work on the optimization of a robotic granular gripper using simulations and machine learning.

MSS paper selected as Editor’s Pick in „Physics of Fluids“

The renowned journal Physics of Fluids has selected our research paper „Can Minkowski tensors of a simply-connected porous microstructure characterize its permeability?” by Prapanch Nair, Sebastian Mühlbauer, Shantanu Roy, and Thorsten Pöschel as Editor’s Pick. The paper will be published shortly.

PhD student Felix Buchele joined MSS

He will work in the field of Computational Particle-based Fluid Dynamics.

Dr.h.c. for Stefan Sokołowski

Previous Humboldt fellow of MSS, Prof. Stefan Sokołowski from the University Lublin (Poland) was awarded honoris causa doctorate of the Institute for Condensed Matter Physics of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Lviv.

MSS-Book: Вернер Эбелинг и Торстен Пёшель: Лекции по квантовой статистике с приоложениями к разреженным газам и плазме

Priv.-Doz. Dr. Igor Goychuk was appointed as an editorial board member of the MDPI journal “Physchem” which is active in the field of physical Chemistry.

Dr. Zhiyuan Cui joined our institute as a research scholar founded by China Scholarship Council.
