Roland graduated in 2018 and is now working in Austria

Research Project: Molecular Nanospintronics: Fundamental magnetic properties and novel device applications
Cyrus Hirjibehedin (UCL), Sandrine Heutz (Imperial)

Roland attended the Vienna University of Technology and was awarded a BSc and MSc in Technical Physics. Whilst researching his Master’s thesis, Roland spent fourteen months at CERN. For his PhD Roland is studying the magnetic behaviour of organic thin films in relation with their chemical and structural properties for potential applications in spintronics.  During his project he takes advantage of a wide range of materials characterisation techniques like AFM and SEM for morphological, XRD for structural, SQUID for magnetic and FTIR, Raman and XPS for chemical characterisation.
