"Best Poster Award” for VGU exchange student

Kieu klein

From 18th – 23rd August, the two VGU exchange students Ba Van Tran and Kieu-Anh Doan were granted a scholarship to attend the Summer School Material 4.0 at TU Dresden. The two are currently working on their master thesis in Germany at the Institute of Technical Mechanics of the TU Clausthal, thanks to the DAAD's financial support (Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst). In the course of the summer school, master student Kieu-Anh Doan was awarded the "Best Poster Award” for her paper “Molecular dynamics simulations of nanoindentation into Aluminium: Influence of oxidation”.

Currently, Ms. Kieu Anh is working on her master thesis under the supervision of Jun. Prof. Gunkelmann from TU Clausthal and Prof. Klaus Hackl from Ruhr-University Bochum. In her thesis, molecular dynamics simulations are used to investigate the influence of oxidation on indentation in aluminium. This material is strongly influenced by oxidation, because even under ultravacuum conditions aluminium is always covered with oxide layers.

We congratulate Ms. Kieu Anh and wish her continued success in finishing her master thesis!

Many thanks to the DAAD, which supports Ba Van Tran and Kieu-Anh Doan as two of four VGU students who are currently in Germany writing their Master's thesis with a scholarship.
