The Silicon Science Award was presented yesterday to a total of five outstanding works by young researchers in the categories of bachelor’s theses, master’s theses and dissertations. The award ceremony took place on 4th September 2023, as part of the opening event of the international 60th Ilmenau Scientific Colloquium “Engineering for a Changing World” in the Audimax of the Ilmenau University of Technology.
Also this year, the expert jury from science and industry was impressed by the high quality of the submissions, their practical relevance as well as their economic implementation in industrial and research projects.
The CiS Research Institute is particularly proud of a Silicon Science Award in the category Bachelor Theses. Here, Lukas Leon Barthelmann, Ilmenau University of Technology, was honored for his research on “Metrological investigation of redundant temperature measurement systems in the temperature range from -40 C to +140 C”.
Lukas Leon Barthelmann, Ilmenau University of Technology, honored for his research on “Metrological investigation of redundant temperature measurement systems in the temperature range from -40 C to +140 C”.
This included the validation of a diversitary redundancy system of special platinum resistors and temperature diodes, whereby extensive experimental investigations were necessary. Against the background of commercial marketing, potentially electrically suitable measurement and temperature devices were compared, optimized and largely automated with regard to the measurement process and data evaluation. His work has already been flanked by two conference contributions and the preparation of a publication. Lukas Barthelmann completed his bachelor thesis at the CiS Research Institute and was supervised by Dr. Ingo Tobehn-Steinhäuser. The scientific supervision took place at the Institute for Process Measurement and Sensor Technology at the TU Ilmenau under the supervision of Prof. Thomas Fröhlich.
The CiS Research Institute warmly congratulates Lukas Barthelmann on this award and wishes him every success in his future career.
Another award winner in the Bachelor category was Zhang Jie, Dresden University of Technology. She was honored for her impressive research results on the topic: “Real-time quantitative phase imaging through an ultra-thin lensless microendoscope”.
In the Master Theses category, Jakob Hampel from Ilmenau University of Technology received the Silicon Science Award for his thesis on “Time-correlated single photon counting for time-domain characterization of high-speed light sources using configurable logic devices”.
Two submissions were awarded in the dissertation category.
Dr. Philip Schmitt, Ruhr University Bochum, impressed with his dissertation on “Passive micromechanical devices and circuits for energy-autonomous sensors”.
With his dissertation on “Development of Electrical Quality Assurance Procedures and Methods for the Silicon Tracking System of the CBM Experiment” Dr. Jaroslav Panasenko, Eberhard Karls University Tübingen, impressed the jury.
The CiS Research Institute warmly congratulates all award winners on their success.
CiS e.V. would like to thank the sponsors for their financial support.
