Professor Dr. Markus Münzenberg

What are the limits to control ultrafast dynamics? With our research we want to unify concepts from femtosecond spin dynamics and spintransport on the nanoscale to make use of them in novel spintronic devices.

    Research focus

  • Spintransport and Organic Spintronics, Green Information Technology (Green IT)

  • Spin-wave Computing, Magnonic Materials

  • Femtosecond Mechanisms of Energy Transfer

  • Terahertz Spintronics and Spincaloritronics

  • See my researcher ID: B-1251-2010

Curriculum Vitae

Markus Münzenberg is leading a research group at Göttingen University and is a professor of experimental physics. He received his Ph.D. from Göttingen University in 2000 on x-ray magnetic circular dichroism experiments at European synchrotron facilities. He performed his post-doctoral research with Jagadeesh S. Moodera’s group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Cambridge, from 2001 to 2002, on spin transport in ferromagnetic tunneling magnetoresistance (TMR) structures, and started a femtosecond magnetization dynamics group as a Junior faculty from 2002 to 2008 at Göttingen University, where he is currently appointed. His interests combine spin-transport and dynamics.

Member of the German Physical Society, American Physical Society, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE),
and Technical Committee member of the Intermag (IEEE).
