06/03/15 - GLCC in Stuttgart

Shortly after starting in Luxembourg I directly went back to Germany in order to participate in the  42nd Topical Meeting on Liquid Crystals, which took place in Stuttgart from the 4th-6th of March on the University campus. During this conference I had the opportunity to present my latest results from Paderborn in an oral presentation entilted “Studies on the compatibility of spherical nanoparticles in a nematic host and their impact on the electro-optic properties” and got good feedback and new impulses from the LC community. As usual, this Topical Meeting on Liquid Crystals was a great opportunity to meet other scientists working in this field, have fruitful discussions and get insight into the manifold facettes of liquid crystal research in Germany.

Thanks to Prof. Giesselmann, the IPC, the University of Stuttgart and the Deutsche Flüssigkristallgesellschaft for hosting this nice conference!

02/03/15 - First Day in Luxembourg

UL - Batiment du Science

The "Batiment du Science" at the UL Campus Limpertsberg, home of the ESMP research group.

Finally Disgona started and today was the first day of my work contract in the Experimental Soft Matter Physics Group of Prof. Jan Lagerwall at the University of Luxembourg. Also I am very eager to finally start with science again, but today was quite busy with administrative things. For the morning, the University invited all new employees to participate in a "Welcome Day" event. In a group of around 20 people the different faculties and administrative services of the University presented themselves. All in all I must say that I felt warmly welcomed here in Luxembourg and that I am convinced to have to very fruitful years of postdoctoral research at this University.
