Last Friday my good friend and colleague Korbinian Kaltenecker defended his PhD at the University of Freiburg. It was a longer exam than expected (one hour overtime) and ended with him getting 1.0-.1.0-1.0, making him eligible for a Summa cum laude*. He now heads off for a post-doc in Copenhagen. Congratulations, and good luck!
(Note also that his doctoral hat contains a cameo from our first paper together back in 2013, showing sub-wavelength terahertz imaging of double apertures in metamaterial fibers. What an honour!)
*Korbinian tells me he has indeed received Summa cum laude. Congratulations!
