"Best Graduate Paper Award" at the 14th WPDP in Auburn, Alabama for Benjamin Tadsen


During the 14th Workshop on the Physics of Dusty Plasmas held from May 26 - 29, 2015 in Auburn, Alabama, Benjamin Tadsen received the "Best Graduate Paper Award" for his talk "The Charge of Single Grains in Dense Nanodust Clouds". 

It deals with a new, sophisticated technique using dust density waves to determine the charge of nanoparticles in a dusty plasma. 

His coauthors are F. Greiner, M. Jacobsen, and A. Piel. B. Tadsen has started his PHD work last year in the Plasma Dynamics Group of Prof. Piel and the talk on the WPDP was his first on an international conference. The work was funded by DFG Sonderforschungsbereich TR24 - "Fundamentals of Complex Plasmas".
