IEEE IMS 2018, Ph.D. student awarded

On this years IEEE International Microwave Symposium (IMS) in Philadelphia, the major conference of the IEEE MTT-S society, the University of Kiel’s Chair of Microwave Engineering published two papers.

As one of 25 finalists Alwin Reinhardt qualified for the Best Student Paper Competition with his topic “Remote Measurement of Particle Streams with a Multistatic Dual Frequency Millimeter Wave Radar Sensor“. In his research the Ph.D. student of Prof. Michael Höft developed a high frequency radar system which can detect and characterize industrial emissions (such as particulates) in real time. After a successful competition at the event Alwin Reinhardt was awarded with the 3rd place by the MTT-S scoiety of the IEEE!

Dr. habil. Martin Ziegler from the Chair of Nanoelectronics accepted an appointment for a W3 Professorship at the TU Ilmenau

Dr. habil. Martin Ziegler from the Chair of Nanoelectronics of the Faculty of Engineering (Kiel University) has been appointed for a W3 professorship for “Micro and nanoelectronics Systems” at the TU Ilmenau. Dr. Martin Ziegler recently accepted the offered professorship and will start his new position on July 1st 2018. His colleagues at the Institute for Electrical Engineering and Information Technology and the Institute of Material Science congratulate Dr. Martin Ziegler for this remarkable achievement. Although Dr. Martin Ziegler will leave Kiel University his fruitful scientific contribution within the DFG research Group entitled “Memristive Devices for Neural Systems” will continue and it is planned to tighten the ties between the TU Ilmenau and Kiel University in the future further.

Automatic Control: Best Interactive Paper Prize

At the 20th World Congress of the International Federation of Automatic Control, the Chair of Automatic Control received the Prize for the Best Interactive Paper. The presentation had two formats: a lecture/oral session and a interactive session.

Prof. Dr. Thomas Meurer, Dr. Alexander Schaum and M. Sc. Henning Weisbarth presented their Paper "Robust adaptive output-feedback tracking control for microalgae cultures" and got selected from 612 papers that were presented in the Interactive Paper category.

In the paper a feedforward-feedback control strategy for trajectory tracking of microalgae cultures is developed and experimentally evaluated.

IEEE Signal Processing Magazine - Part 1 & 2

Together with five other chairs/editors the DSS team organized a douple issue of IEEE's Signal Processing Magazine. The first of the two issues was published at the end of November 2016 and we were of course really proud of beeing part of the editing team (John Hansen, Kazuya Takeda, Sanjeev Naik, Mohan Trivedi, Gerhard Schmidt, and Yingying Chen) of this highly respected journal. The topic of the special issue is "Signal Processing for Smart Vehicle Technoloiges".
The second issue appeared in spring 2017.

New DFG-ANR cooperation project has started

The project "Interconnected infinite-dimensional systems for heterogeneous media" (INFIDHEM) has started with a kick-off meeting in Lyon from March 1st to 2nd, 2017.  The project is devoted to the analysis and the control of partial differential equations and the technological application of the developed methods. This German-French research project is jointly funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) and its French counterpart, L'Agence nationale de la recherche (ANR), for a period of three years with a volume of 1.4 Mio. EUR.      _

Rolling out solar cells

Solar cells as thin as foil, and so flexible that they can be rolled out over various large surfaces such as house and vehicle roofs or glass fronts – that is one of the long-term goals of a German-Danish research project that is starting now. Those involved in the “RollFlex Innovation Project Centre” include the University of Southern Denmark (SDU), where the project is headquartered, Kiel University (CAU), the CAU-based start-up FUMT R&D Functional Materials GmbH, the Danish company Stensborg A/S, as well as numerous German and Danish network partners. The official kick-off event took place yesterday (Wednesday 14 December) in Sonderborg.

1st International Workshop on “Memristive Devices for neuronal Systems”

05. September 2016 – 08. September 2016

The research on memristive devices and their application in neuromorphic systems has become one of the most exciting areas in solid state physics and electronic systems. The possibility to engineer interfaces on the atomic scale accompanied with a tremendous progress in the electronic and structural analytics has led to a gradually better matching of experimental results with theoretical predictions and thus, to the hope of discovery new and/or improved functional memory devices. Memristive devices exhibit a wealth of phenomena and attracted a considerable interest from both the fundamental and device relevant point of research.
