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

  • 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; interfaces in complex oxides
  • 3rd generation photovoltaic, thermoelectric, and electrochromic materials
  • 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
