Fabian Natterer is the head of the group and a SNSF Professor since October 2018. He earned his PhD in Physics from EPFL in 2013 for his work on graphene, hexagonal boron nitride, and molecular rotations of hydrogen. His postdoctoral research at NIST focused on the properties graphene devices, such the confinement of electrons in whispering gallery modes. His postdoctoral work at IBM research Almaden concentrated on STM based electron spin resonance and single atom magnets. In his following Ambizione project at EPFL, he built an ESR enabled STM for which he developed spin-polarized tips made from antiferromagnetic materials. His team develops novel protocols for advanced STM measurements, such as compressive sensing enhanced quasiparticle interference, and pump-probe and pulsed-ESR spectroscopy for time-resolved measurements.
