WiNS Workshop: Find Your Inner Compass: Life and Career Navigator @ Online
Jan 21 – Jan 22 ganztägig

Preparing for your unique career profile in scientific and non-scientific fields

  • Combinations of career scenarios
  • Clarity of direction and life vision – Who am I? What do I really want? What is the purpose of my dissertation? What do I want to achieve?
  • Destination Management – How do I turn my holistic vision into concrete career goals?
  • How do I resolve conflicts (e.g. career planning – private goals – the mobility requirement)?
  • Dynamic planning methods – goal planning with many unknown elements
  • Overview of conventional and unconventional career strategies
  • Creating a personal career-specific integrated navigation plan – next steps

This seminar comprises inspirational input, group work, discussion and individual exercises which combine to form a powerful learning experience, with lasting effects.

Target group: female PhD students and postdocs
Maximum number of participants: 12

Terahertz Spectroscopy: from basic research to real world applications

Martin Koch | Department of Physics, Philipps Universität Marburg

In the last few years spectroscopy at terahertz (THz) frequencies, i.e. in the range between 0.1 and a few THz has enjoyed increasing interest for two reasons. Firstly, a lot of fundamental excitations in matter have transition energies in the meV range. Hence, they can be excited by THz photons. Examples include molecular vibrations, phonons in crystalline solids and intra-excitonic transitions; to name only a few. Secondly, a multitude of applications have been discussed for THz systems, ranging from medical diagnostics and security applications to the monitoring of industrial production processes.

In this talk we first will give examples for basic research applications of THz spectroscopy systems. In particular, we investigate the building and decay dynamics of charge transfer excitons using optical pump-THz probe spectroscopy. Furthermore, we will discuss several real-world applications of THz spectroscopy systems and the recent progress in the developmentof these systems.
