The lecture will be presented during the microscopy congress MC2013 (http://www.mc2013.de/) held at the University of Regensburg (FRG), where more than 1.000 international scientists will discuss their newest results. Prof. Dr. Josef Zweck from the Institute of Experimental and Applied Physics will hand over the award as president of the German society for electron microscopy.
Schattschneider receives the award for his work on electron magnetic chiral dichroism (EMCD) and its applications in practice. With EMCD it is possible to characterize nanometre sized areas of magnetic specimens. His work also triggered the preparation and application of only recently developed electron vortex beams. Prof. Schattschneider will cover these topics in his lecture.
The Harald Rose Distinguished Lecture is named after Prof. Dr. Harald Rose. The prize will be awarded by the German society for electron microscopy every two years for outstanding and current work which is still actively pursued. The work shall cover the field of particle optics, preferentially the realm of electron microscopy. A person shall be honoured who covers topics which are closely related to the work of Harald Rose.

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.
We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...
Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.
Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.
In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
