Post Doc Researcher

Philip Willke

Dr. Willke’s research interest focuses on exploring the nano world using scanning probe methods. This includes the magnetic and electronic properties of single atoms, atomic-scale defects and materials. He has investigated local electron transport as well as substitutional defects in graphene and is currently working on magnetic properties of single spin centers on surfaces. Accordingly, new tools and techniques need to be invented and developed, for instance he has further developed the scanning probe techniques of electron spin resonance combined with scanning tunneling microscopy (ESR-STM) as well as scanning tunneling potentiometry (STP).
