Research is on fundamental topics in micro- and nanometer-scale science and technology with a strong emphasis towards new materials and applications. It can be divided into three main fields: The investigation of hybrid (superconductor, ferromagnet, semiconductor) quantum structures by transport and magnetization measurements, optical analysis of correlated materials and biomaterials by Raman spectroscopy and ellipsometry as well as the investigation of quantum Hall droplets.
Their research activities are concentrated on nanometer-scale science and technology based on scanning probe methods (SPM). In particular, we investigate the fundamental relationship between nanostructure and nanophysical properties.
The group explores novel materials for future applications in nano- and spinelectronic devices using powerful methods of theoretical solid state physics involving computations on large computer clusters and/or supercomputers.
Der Konzentration der Forschung im Bereich Nanowissenschaften wurde in der Lehre bereits in der Bachelorphase Rechnung getragen. Das Lehrangebot soll durch ein vertiefendes Angebot in einem eigenständigen Masterstudiengang Nanowissenschaften forschungsorientiert, jedoch mit starkem Anwendungsbezug, ergänzt werden.
The main goals of the group's work are the basic understanding of magnetism and spin dependent electronic transport in thin films and nanostructures, the development of optimized magneto- and spin electronic devices and new methods for the creation of magnetic nanopatterns.
The group of Christoph Cremer focuses on the biophysics/analysis of the nuclear nanostructure, mainly of mamalian cell nuclei. For this, a combination of biocomputing simulations and experimental approaches is used.
