Learning from the best: TUD-Physicist Helena Reichlova has been selected for #LINO19
Dr. Helena Reichlova is a research associate at the Institute of Solid State and Materials Physics at TU Dresden. This year, she has the unique opportunity to participate in Germany’s largest Nobel Laureate Meeting, which takes place every year in Lindau on Lake Constance. It is an immense honour for the young scientist and a great opportunity to learn from the world’s best, to exchange scientific knowledge, to be inspired and to network.
The 69th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting, also referred to as #LINO19, will take place from 30th June to 5th July 2019. This year’s meeting is devoted to physics with the key topics being cosmology, laser physics and gravitational waves. A total of 39 Nobel Laureates accepted the invitation and will give lectures, exchange ideas with each other and, above all, inspire the next generation of excellent young scientists with stories about their lives, their research and their individual „secret recipes“ in science.
Dr. Helena Reichlova from TU Dresden is one of 580 young scientists from 89 countries who passed a multi-stage application and selection process and has been chosen for the meeting. The 33-year-old postdoctoral research fellow from Prague is an experimental condensed matter physicist specialising in spintronics, a field of nanoelectronics in which data storage devices are built from nanomagnets and magnetic currents. For over a year, she has been working in the group of Prof. Dr. Sebastian Goennenwein at TU Dresden. Helena is particularly proud to be able to present her research topic in a masterclass at #LINO19. The masterclass entitled „Topology & Physics: Topological Materials, Skyrmions“ will be led by Albert Fert, 2007 Nobel Prize winner in physics. Only ten of the nearly 600 participants were selected to give such a presentation. Helena looking forward to it with eager anticipation: „I am not really nervous, but very keen to receive feedback from these intelligent people. Perhaps I will also get valuable inspiration for my topic or find possible cooperation partners. It is really a great opportunity to gather a lot of scientific input and learn from the best.”
In addition to the specialist programme sessions, social events offer numerous chances to meet the Nobel Prize winners. Helena has registered for dinner at the table of Michael Kosterlitz, Nobel Laureate in Physics 2016. She was unfortunately at a conference during his visit to TU Dresden in May of this year and was therefore unable to meet him. So she is all the more pleased to have the opportunity to get to know him in Lindau and to have time to get into in-depth discussions.
During the Lindau week, Helena will share some of her experiences on the Twitter account of the School of Science of TU Dresden. We eagerly look forward to them! https://twitter.com/TUD_Science
And for all Nobel Laureate fans in Dresden: the Japanese Nobel Laureate Takaaki Kajita will be coming directly from Lindau to Dresden on 3rd July. At 7 pm, you are cordially invited to the Audimax of TU Dresden to join Prof. Kajita on the search for ghost particles. His public lecture „Oscillating Neutrinos“ will be held in English. Admission is free. More information can be found at: tu-dresden.de/mn/nobel
