Prize Winner 2012
The 2012 Ernst-Eckhard-Koch-Prize has been bestowed upon Dr. Daniil Evtushinsky for his PhD thesis ‘Physical properties of layered superconductors from angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES)’. Daniil Evtushinsky was born in 1984 in Kiev (Ukraine). He received his Master of Science in Applied Mathematics and Physics at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology in 2007. For his PhD work he moved, then, to the Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research in Dresden (IFW Dresden), where he has gained considerable expertise in the field of evaluation and interpretation of angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy studies. The experiments were performed at the synchrotron radiation facility BESSY II. The PhD thesis was supervised by Prof. Bernd Büchner and Dr. Sergey V. Borisenko and defended in 2011 at the Dresden University of Technology. The work has already led to numerous publications in high-ranking journals.
