BASE members Barbara Latacz and Peter Micke received competitive fellowships and research prizes.

The future work of Barbara Latacz will be supported by one of the competitive RIKEN SPDR research fellowships, her work will be dealing with the operation of BASE, the implementation of improved ultra-low noise detection systems with single particle sensitivity, and contributions to the development of the axion haloscope BASE CDM, to test both, fundamental symmetries and exotic physics.

Peter Micke has received one of the competitive CERN research fellowships to contribute to the operation of BASE, the development of new trap designs, and to apply sympathetic cooling techniques to create colder protons and antiprotons for measurements of fundamental antimatter constants and tests of fundamental symmetries at improved sampling rate and at highest precision.

For his previous work on “Quantum Logic Spectroscopy of Highly Charged Ions”, Peter has also received the dissertation award of the section Atoms, Molecules, Quantum Optics and Plasmas (SAMOP) of the German Physical Society. This work was conducted at the German National metrology laboratory (PTB) in the groups of Piet Schmidt and José Crespo, recognizing outstanding scientific work of young scientists.

We congratulate Barbara and Peter to these outstanding achievements.
