2nd Institute of Physics B

Welcome to the web page of the 2nd Institute of Physics B at RWTH Aachen University. The institute consists of two scientific groups head by Prof. Markus Morgenstern (“Electron Systems at the Atomic Scale”) and Prof. Uwe Klemradt (“X-ray scattering and phase transitions”). It is, moreover, coordinator of the DFG research group 912 “Spin relaxation and coherence” and part of JARA-FIT (J√ľlich Aachen Research Alliance: Fundamentals of Future Information Technology).

Article in Physical Review Letters: The nodes responsible for the quantum mechanical distinction of different Landau levels have been spotted directly by fixing Landau level states to a potential valley (Phys. Rev. Lett. 118, 16803 (2017).).
Article in Nano Letters: Creation of edge free quantums dots in commensurate graphene on BN exhibiting orbital and valley splittings (Nano Lett. 16, 5798 (2016).).
Article in Nature Physics: Cartography of the Spin-Orbit-Interaction. Spatially resolved imaging of the Rashba effect by scanning tunneling microscopy.
Our research is focused on the investigation of low dimensional electron systems at the atomic scale.
