Welcome to the AG Weitz!


We investigate the fundamental electronic properties of novel nanoscopic systems such as 2D-materials (especially van-der-Waals materials) and organic semiconductors. These materials are a versatile playground to study basic quantum phenomena and are of interest for energy harvesting and large-area flexible electronics. We study their properties via a combination of electrical and optical investigations and aim to gain a detailed understanding of how small deterministic changes to the systems of interest, as for example introduced by electric or magnetic fields, adsorption of molecules or the breaking of various symmetries can influence the overall behavior of the electronic and quantum transport phenomena. One of the goals is to understand energy conversion pathways. Our methods include (magneto-)transport, near-field microscopy and spectroscopy and (near field) photocurrent measurements.
