Teaching & PhD


Advanced Microscopy for Magnetic Materials

Theoretical and practical expertise is gained about the microscopy of spin structures and magnetic configuiations down to the sub-nm length and sub-ns time scales such as transmission electron microscopy, x-ray and light scattering, magnetic dichroism, and scanning probe technlques.

Physics of materials

This course illustrates some selected chapters of materials physics needed to understand the mechanical and structural properties of solids. This course deals primarily with the physics of dislocation. The course also links diffusion kinetics to the fundamental physics of phase transformations.

Electron Matter Interactions in Transmission Electron Microscopy

This course will present the fundamentals of electron–matter interactions, as occuring in the energy range available in modern transmission electron microscopes, namely 60-300 keV electrons. Diffraction and high-resolution image formation as well as electron energy-loss spectrometry will be covere
