The Lecture honours Felix Bloch as name patron of our Institute for Solid State Physics and serves as a testimony to his scientific legacy.

The ”Felix Bloch Early Investigator Award” is presented during the event. It is awarded to young scientists for special scientific achievements during their doctoral studies or up to a maximum of three years after their doctorate, which have been significantly developed in Leipzig.
