Project management in & outside academia

New, time limited and complex – such are the tasks generally undertaken as projects. A work environment without project work is almost unimaginable nowadays. And this is not only true for the non-academic sector: Even the doctorate is a project!

Proven project management tools pave the way for the professional development and planning of projects, for competent guiding of their implementation and for their successful completion. With the help of these tools even difficult steps in the project journey can be safely navigated.

Talk by E. Schreck at MLU (6th December 2016)

Polymers on Surfaces – or how to catch them all

The talk  will feature recent developments in the lab. It focuses mainly on the preparation of thinnest polymer films / single molecules under UHV condition. It introduces the techniques quadrupole mass spectrometry (QMS), quartz microbalance (QMB) and scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and how their results should lead to a successful preparation. A short overview of what is coming next will be given at the end of the talk.

Location: MLU Halle-Wittenberg, Von-Danckelmann-Platz 3, SR 1.03, 06120 Halle (Saale)

Scientia Halensis: 40 Jahre Polymerforschung in Halle

Atlas Polymers G. Michler
Atlas Polymers G. Michler

Erst die Vergrößerung zeigt: Viele Gegenstände, wie Displays oder Verpackungen, bestehen aus langkettigen Molekülen, den Grundbausteinen der Polymere. Die Forschung an diesen Stoffen hat in Halle eine lange Tradition. Der emeritierte Polymerforscher Prof. Dr. Goerg H. Michler gibt in seinem „Atlas of Polymer Structures“ eine zusammenfassende Übersicht über vier Jahrzehnte der Polymerforschung in Halle.
