We explore the physics and chemistry of new materials. Our aim is to generate new fundamental knowledge and innovations. New materials are necessary to store information in a better way and to transmit it faster, to filter waves of specific frequency, to shield magnetic fields, to convert heat into electricity or to store energy. These processes take place at the level of molecules, atoms and electrons and are determined by the laws of quantum physics. At IFW Dresden, we investigate these physical laws and develop materials with better or completely new functions.
Carsten Albert has been honored for his outstanding work with the Science Award of the City of Dresden.
APS recognizes the exceptional work in the assessment of manuscripts published in the Physical Review Journals.
To strengthen science in Saxony, the project "SPIN2030" will start on February 3, 2023. IFW Dresden will be part of the kick-off in Leipzig.
