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.

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.
