SALSA Make and Measure 2020

SALSA's Make and Measure 2020 took place online on 15-17 October


"Make and Measure 2020" focused on the "Advanced Characterization of Materials" with members, guests and friends of SALSA in discussion sessions, invited presentations and individual exchange. On the occasion of our annual meeting, we also welcomed new associated SALSA fellows from this summer's new SALSA call, and we took the chance to initiate a dedicated collaboration in graduate research in Adlershof together with "Berlin Research 50" (BR50). 

One of the highlights of Make and Measure 2020 was the poster flash and presentation. The poster prize winners were:

1. Tilmann Neubert (SALSA):

    Faradaic Effects in Electrochemically Gated Graphene Field Effect Sensors

2. Soraya Höfs (BAM):

    Immunomagnetic Ochratoxin A Assay with Smartphone-Based Amperometric Detection

3. Michel Werhold (SALSA):

    Graphene Sandwich Assembly for Sensing and Electrocatalysis


Take a look at this video, which shows a selection of the poster flash video presentations:
