Congratulations to Belén Zúñiga and Po-Ya Yang!
In a “double feature” of PhD defenses, two students of IMPRS-CPQM successfully completed their doctoral work. Yesterday, Belén Zúñiga defended her thesis on “Magnetic Properties and Domains in the Uniaxial Ferromagnet Mn1.4PtSn and the Non-collinear Antiferromagnet Mn3Pt under Strain”, which was the result of a research project under the joint supervision of Prof. Dr. Lukas Eng and Dr. Clifford Hicks.
Po-Ya’s work, also under the supervision of Dr. Clifford Hicks, resulted in a thesis on “Probing Hund's-Metal Physics through the Hall Effect in Microstructured Sr2RuO4 under Uniaxial Stress”, which he successfully defended earlier today and for which he was awarded the distinction “magna cum laude”.
We congratulate both Belén and Po-Ya on their achievements and wish them all the best for their future career. As a next steps, both of them will work as postdoctoral researchers at MPI CPfS: Belén will work in the group of Dr. Elena Gati, and Po-Ya in the newly established group of Dr. Uri Vool.
