Dr. Kaspars Dadzis (Leibniz Institute for Crystal Growth) has received the LIMTECH Young Scientist Award 2017 for his work in the field of model experiments and numerical simulation in crystal growth.

From 2002 to 2007, Mr. Dadzis worked at the University of Latvia, Riga, on the simulation of crystal growth processes using the float zone method before starting to work in industrial crystal growth in 2008 (SolarWorld, Freiberg). He obtained his doctorate in the field of directional solidification of silicon at the TU Bergakademie Freiberg in cooperation with the Fraunhofer institutes IISB and THM. Since 2016, Mr. Dadzis has been conducting research at the Leibniz Institute for Crystal Growth in the Silicon & Germanium workgroup where he has been working on the development of new methods for the growth of crystalline materials.

The prize is awarded annually by the LIMTECH Alliance, a research initiative on liquid metal technology sponsored by the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres. Dr. Dadzis will give his presentation on the award ceremony on "Model experiments in crystal growth" at a symposium of the alliance on September 19 and 20, 2017 in Dresden. The award is endowed with 2000 €.
