Dr. Stephan E. Wolf, MAP lecturer (Privatdozent, PD) at the Institute of Glass and Ceramics in the MAP host Department of Materials Science and Engineering, has been accepted to the prestigious Heisenberg Program of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation). In this program, DFG provides funding to outstanding researchers with projects of high scientific quality and originality. Thereby, the DFG supports these high potentials by allowing them to further prepare for a senior academic role.

Wolf’s Heisenberg project is dedicated to amorphous and thus disordered phases of inorganic materials and develops them into a novel and versatile synthesis tool. Since these amorphous phases play a decisive role in various biological, geological, and industrial processes, his project also contributes to numerous interdisciplinary topics, from paleoclimatology to more environmental-friendly industrial processes and low-temperature ceramic and glass processing.

The funding amounts to almost €1 million.
