MaNEP. Two new members were just elected to join us : Prof. Christian Bernhard, University of Fribourg and Dr. Elvezio Morenzoni, PSI. A hearty welcome to both...
One of the pillars of our management, Dr. Olivier Kuffer, left MaNEP on June 30. In addition to his remarkable research using STM on ferroelectrics, Olivier was central to the establishment of many other activities at MaNEP. I thank him warmly for alll his invaluable contributions and wish him all the best for his future career.
This month again a MaNEP scientist was awarded : Dr. Celine Lichtensteiger received the Vacheron Constantin Prize for her excellent thesis. My congratulations !
