Congratulations to the winners of the student award 2019

The prize was awarded during PicoQuant's 25th anniversary single molecule workshop

A core aspect of the Single Molecule Workshop is fostering young researchers. To achieve this goal, PicoQuant provides PhD and undergraduate students the opportunity to present their work in front of an international audience and honors the best presentation with a student award. Selecting a single winner from this year’s outstanding 15 contributions proved to be so challenging that the jury decided to nominate three winners. The 1500 Euro prize was split between Arindam Ghosh (University of Göttingen, Germany) for his talk on “graphene based metal induced energy transfer for sub-nanometer optical localization”,  Kristyna Holanova (Institute of Photonics and Electronics of the CAS, Czech Republic) for her work on “revealing single-protein function by high-speed tracking of individual domains”, and Tim Schröder (University of Munich, Germany) for his presentation on “following the fate of excitions in multi-chromophoric nanoparticles”. We thank all participating students for presenting such excellent talks. Congratulations to the the winners!
