Involvement since the early days of spintronics, recognition for his work on giant magnetoresistance (CPP-GMR).Magnetic relaxation of single nanostructures.
Professor Harald Brune”s research program focuses on the exploration of the novel physical and chemical properties arising when metals shrink to the nanoscale. Starting from a detailed understanding of epitaxial growth, derived from variable temperature
Nanoscale science, self-ordering phenomena and in chemistry and physics of surfaces and interfaces
He is working on several aspects of the problem of strongly correlated electronic systems, with current emphasis on frustrated magnetism and low-dimensional conductors, in the context of several transition metal oxides as well as organic conductors
We study mainly magnetic phenomena in correlated electron materials ranging from local spin clusters to novel superconductors. Our thrust is on combination of the powerful techniques of neutron scattering at large scale facilities with in house measurements
Theoretical and computational physics of Dirac fermion materials (graphene and topological insulators) with strong emphasis on their prospective technological applications.
