Franziska Treffert has been awarded a two year doctoral scholarship from the German National Academic Foundation
HEDS doctoral student Franziska Treffert has been awarded a two year doctoral scholarship from the German National Academic Foundation (Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes). This award will be used to support her PhD research on neutron generation using cryogenic low-Z jets, advised by Dr. Siegfried H. Glenzer and Prof. Dr. Markus Roth (TU Darmstadt, Germany).
Siegfried Glenzer, SLAC's director of high energy density science, who received an honorary doctorate at Universitat Rostock in Germany "in appreciation of his pioneering contributions to the physics at high energy densities and to the diagnostics of dense plasmas."
Researchers from the High Energy Density Science division at SLAC have unveiled a new mechanism that could power the acceleration of the most energetic particles in the universe in the jets of supermassive black holes.
