Postdoctoral Researcher

Aparajita Singha

Dr. Singha’s research interests involve probing the magnetic properties of surface supported systems such as single atoms, molecules, and small clusters. During her stay at EPFL, she has investigated such systems by combining several experimental and theoretical tools. Her experimental expertise includes scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and synchrotron based measurement techniques such as X-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD) and photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS).
