Festliches Symposium "Mikro- und Nanostrukturphysik mit Halbleitern, Supraleitern und Ferromagneten" zu Ehren von Professor Dr. Ulrich Merkt anläßlich seines Eintritts in den Ruhestand

Open Positions

Offers for assistant students, bachelor theses, master theses, diploma theses and Ph. D. theses can be found here.


Research in our group is on fundamental topics in micro- and nanometer-scale science and technology with a strong emphasis towards new materials and applications. We focus on the investigation of hybrid (superconductor, ferromagnet, semiconductor) quantum structures by transport and magnetization measurements.

We organize the Graduiertenkolleg 1286 "Functional Metal-Semiconductor Hybrid Systems" of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) and contribute two projects to the Sonderforschungsbereich 668 "Magnetismus vom Einzelatom zur Nanostruktur" of the DFG that have been established by the University of Hamburg and the Freie und Hansestadt Hamburg.
