Anna-Katharina Schmidt receives 'Best Student Talk Award' at the Physics Student Research Conference 2021
Anna-Katharina Schmidt received the 'Best Student Talk Award' on the occasion of the 2021 edition of LMU's Physics Student Research Conference, held under the motto of „Science is virtually You“ on March 9 for the 5th time.
The 52 participants enjoyed 14 talks from astrophysics, cosmology, solid state physics, mathematical physics, quantum optics, laser physics, medical physics, analytical methods & chaos and nonlinear dynamics and meteorology, which were held in parallel sessions.
The highlight of the conference was the final award ceremony for the best presentation, which was determined by the average of the scores of the personal evaluation sheets. The Dean of Studies of the Faculty of Physics, Professor Jochen Weller, made it especially exciting with virtual academic cap and announced Ms. Anna-Katharina Schmidt as the winner of the "Best Student Talk Award 2021" to the applause of the participants.
Ms. Schmidt is a master student at the Chair of Medical Physics with Professor Dr. Jörg Schreiber and gave a talk on "The Sound of Ions - Calibration of Acoustic Detectors for Laser Accelerated Ion Bunches". She is working on detecting sound waves from ionization processes in water as part of her master's thesis. Her excellently structured talk invited many interested questions and lively discussion.
