Big Names: Heinz Bethge

Just a few years after the end of World War II, scientists at MLU’s Institute of Physics started using electron microscopy in their research. What now appears unremarkable, was new and innovative at the time. The mastermind behind this achievement was the physicist and later president of the Leopoldina, Heinz Bethge. Read more

How blood cells grow

Medical physicists Professor Jan Laufer and Ulrike Pohle are working on a world first: a photoacoustic microscope with an optical ultrasound sensor that makes it possible to display high-resolution images of blood vessel networks. Their goal is to closely monitor and understand their growth. Read more

Halle’s Physicists on a Pathway to Success

Knowledge transfer is only successful when it is coupled with excellent basic research. The staff at the Institute of Physics are doing just that. The institute is not only home to three collaborative research centres (CRC) of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) and one Alexander von Humboldt professorship. Its researchers have excellent international ties and have regularly attracted notice through articles published in renowned journals. Read more

“Success means having scientific insight”

If it wasn’t for Professor Ingrid Mertig, Nobel laureate Albert Fert would not be visiting the Weinberg Campus as often as he does. And perhaps Humboldt Professor Stuart Parkin wouldn’t have decided to come to the University. Mertig has been teaching and conducting research at Martin Luther University for the past 15 years as a professor of quantum theory of the solid state. Here she has built up the key research area “nanostructured materials”, which she has decisively shaped over the years as the spokesperson for the collaborative research centre (CRC) “Functionality of Oxidic Interfaces”.
