Topic: Fluxoid Dynamics in High Impedance Josephson Junctions
Reviewer: Prof. Alexey V. Ustinov
Advisors: Dr. Hannes Rotzinger, Micha Wildermuth
We developed a fabrication method for impedance-matchable Josephson Junctions made from disordered aluminum oxide/ granular aluminum doA/Gral. Magnetic field and Temperature dependent measurements enabled us to study the dynamics of Fluxoids.

Topic: Cloaked Contact Grids on Solar Cells
Reviewer: Prof. Martin Wegener
We numerically investigate into the question of whether or to which extend contact grids on solar cells can be cloaked in three dimensions by a specially shaped polymer layer on top of the solar cell. We were able to analytically describe this problem in terms of one differential equation. The coupling of the dimensions parallel to the surface of the solar cell via the normal vector of the interface remains also if one rephrases the cloaking problem in terms of generalized Snell's law.
