20/11/2015: SFB 762 is funded for another four years

The Senate Committee on Collaborative Research Centres of the German Research Foundation has granted the third funding period of the SFB 762 during its meeting on November 19, 2015. The funding of the SFB for the years 2016-2019 amounts to an annual 2.5 million euros; all 21 proposed projects are funded.

"The DFG reviewers have confirmed that the SFB 762 has developed into an internationally visible centre for oxide interfaces. We are proud!", says Prof. Dr. Ingrid Mertig, the spokesperson of the SFB.

06/03/2015: Nobel Laureate in Physics Albert Fert visits University of Halle

The French Nobel Laureate in Physics Professor Albert Fert visits the Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg for his first research stay. In a Special Physical Colloquium on the Weinberg Campus he will speak on Thursday, March 12 from 17:15 o'clock publicly about spin-orbitronics, which could lead to a more powerful yet more energy-efficient computer technology. Albert Fert is one of this year's recipients of a Humboldt Research Award of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. The prize money he uses, among other things, for several research stays in Halle.

Host for Fert's stay is Prof. Dr. Ingrid Mertig, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Centre (SFB) 762 "Functionality of Oxide Interfaces", which is part of the research network "Nanostructured Materials", in which besides the University also the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics is involved. In the SFB scientists are investigating oxide nanostructures that have, like spin-orbitronics, the potential for new storage technologies. "We are looking forward to the collaboration with Albert Fert and expect new impulses for our SFB," says Ingrid Mertig.
