New materials and devices for IT, Health and Energy
The main goal of our experimental physics group at Bielefeld University is the
understanding of the relations between the atomistic microstructure of new thin film systems and bulk materials and their physical
properties. We use advanced ultra-high vacuum coating technology and crystal growth techniques for sample fabrication.
The activities of our group concentrate on new materials and devices for the spin dependent transport in thin films and nanostructures, and on magnetocaloric and thermoelectric effects in nanostructured materials. For our research we have access to highest resolution techniques such as microscopy and low temperature characterization. For applications, we use lithography to create optimized devices down to the sub-100nm scale and to enable new applications in the fields of sensors, information- and biotechnology as well as energy conversion.
The group participates in the following research consortia:
Thin Films & Physics of Nanostructures
