»We want to understand the magnetic properties of novel nano materials and structures and even single molecules and atoms on surfaces. Beyond that, we also want to learn how to manipulate and control them for future applications in spin electronics. The spin of electrons is a property like their electric charge and can be used to process and to code information. Through specific manipulation we could create faster and highly efficient components for information technology.«

Stefan Heinze. Since May 2009 professor for Theoretical Physics at Kiel University. Prior to that junior professor at the University of Hamburg and post doc at IBM T.J. Watson Research Center Yorktown Heights, New York/USA. Born in Aachen. 2000 PhD at the University of Hamburg.
