Spectroscopy of Complex Materials

The NanoMagnetism Group





The research of the Michels group is centered around the technique of magnetic small-angle neutron scattering (SANS). Experimental,  theoretical, and simulation work is carried out in order to understand and develop the fundamentals of magnetic SANS. Studied materials  include Nd-Fe-B magnets, Mn-Bi rare-earth-free magnets, Heusler-type alloys, nanocomposites, magnetic nanoparticles, and steels.

Group Leader: Associate Prof. Andreas Michels

Multifunctional Ferroic Materials





The Multifunctional Ferroic Materials group (MFM) is devoted to experimental investigations of crystalline matter by means of solid state  spectroscopy methods, with a particular focus on new and original phase transitions, excitations, coupling phenomena, or active tuning of  material properties.

Group Leader: Prof. Jens Kreisel and Assistant Prof. Maël Guennou

Ultrafast Condensed Matter Physics





The Ultrafast Condensed Matter Physics (UCMP) aims at the investigation of fundamental phenomena occurring in matter at ultrashort  timescale. For this reason, we develop innovative ultrafast systems and techniques with the ultimate goal to understand and control how light  interacts with matter to unveil the microscopic origin of the properties of materials that are of high technological interest.

Group Leader: Prof. Daniele Brida
