Electronic Properties

At the PGI "Electronic Properties" Institute, we explore the interrelations between electronic structure and physical properties such as magnetism and magnetic phenomena by applying, for example, synchrotron radiation techniques. Systems of interest range from thin film systems, quantum wires and dots to molecules. Keywords here are nanosciences, spintronics, quantum computing, and giant magnetoresistance.

JuSPARC Launch: New High-Power Lasers Go into Operation at Jülich

Jülich, 25 January 2019 – A new laser laboratory was officially opened at FZ Jülich on Thursday. At the heart of JuSPARC are its two high-performance lasers, which generate ultrashort laser pulses of up to 1.4 terawatts, or 1.4 trillion watts.

Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM) can be combined with electron spin resonance. The major advantage of spin resonance is the fact that the energy resolution is independent of the temperature and thus can be much higher than a Fermi-function limited spectroscopy technique such as STM tunneling.
