Current research focus

  • Unconventional Superconductors
  • Ruthenium and other 4d or 5d compounds (superconductivity, metal-insulator transitions, magnetism, ...)
  • Multiferroic and magnetoelectric compounds coupled order of orbital, charge and spin degrees of freedom
  • Crystal growth of oxides
  • KOMPASS, a three-axis spectrometer optimized for polarization analysis


In the KFN, I would stand up for:

This decade is marked by a fundamental change in the landscape of neutron sources in Europe, and the immense progress in sources and instrumentation will open completely new perspectives. It is now time to set the course to ensure that European users continue to have access to world-leading instrumentation that can answer current and future scientific questions.
