Bachelor & Master projects

We are warmly welcoming students to carry out their bachelor and master projects in our group. Strongly correlated electron systems, superconductivity, metal-insulator transitions and orbital physics are examples of possible topics. We can offer training in both laboratory as well as large scale synchrotron and neutron scattering experiments. Interested? Please contact us by mail or drop by our laboratory.
