RESEARCH

Professor Seidel’s research interests in the area of advanced electronic, photonic and spintronic materials include the following:

  • Advanced scanning probe microscopy applied to materials characterisation (AFM, c-AFM, PFM, EFM, MFM, KPFM, STM/STS, …)
  • Domain walls, skyrmions and other topological structures in ferroic materials
  • Oxide nanoelectronics, interfaces in complex oxides
  • 3rd generation photovoltaic, thermoelectric, and electrochromic materials, e.g. halide perovskites
  • Nanoscale phases and properties of materials
  • Inorganic / organic semiconductors, biomaterials
  • Nano-optics and spectroscopy, plasmonics
  • X-ray based synchrotron techniques (XAS, XMCD and XMLD-PEEM)
  • High-resolution transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and spectroscopy (EELS)
  • Neutron scattering
