September 2021: We used the warm nice weather for a spontaneous "after work drink" with lots of chats, laughter and delicious beer with surprising though exquisite tastes. Thank you all for coming and special thanks to our brewer in the team!

September 2021: We warmly welcome Pierre who will begins his career as a PhD student. We wish you great success and we look forward to  great and enjoyable time with you.

July 2021: Welcome to our new working student Clemens! We are happy having you here and we wish you success and an enjoyable time.

Lots of activities in June and July:


We participated at the Leonardo-Campus-Run at the “5000” steps composition as a group having a nice walk around Münster with a lot of fresh air, sun, some laughers and of course sufficient physical distance. Afterwards we refreshed with tasty cold isotonic beverage specially brewed at the “Stone circle” (Thank you Sebastian!).

The mK-System is no equipped with the piezo actuators and the low-temperature objective - and it is still super cold with a record of 7mK with open windows and some light on the sample! Well done to the team in particular Frank and Torsten and of course the team of the Machine Job.


Everything was finished just in time for your guest researcher Flo from Munich who will join us for some exciting measurements on van der Waals heterobilayers.
The characterization set-up I is ready and the time-resolved set-up with the gated ICCD are ready as well. Characterization set-up II is currently planned.  Well done to all, in particular to Nihit together with the others.


Our “kiuty” enjoys the low temperatures and is busy with temperature dependent transport and ellipsometry experiments. Simultaneously, the SIE is running almost continuously – a great team effort!

We organized the first summer school of the SPP2244 “vdW assembly – more than playing Lego” which had to be held virtually. Nevertheless, we had excellent talks, active poster discussions and lab tours, tons of discussions and some chats beyond research.

In this contest: Congrats to Hossein for being elected as student representative of the SPP2244. Many thanks for your service to the community.

End of June: Time to say good bye: Iris and David are moving to their next positions, both in Spain. Iris is doing a Posdoc at the CIC nanoGUNE in San Sebastian and David starts as a PhD student at ICMS-CSIC in Seville. We thank you both for the enjoyable and successful time and wish you all the best for your future in science and beyond and hope to see you again at the one or the other occasion.

Juni 2021: Im Rahmen eines einwöchigen Schulpraktikums konnten Alicia und Johannes interessante Eindrücke aus dem Arbeitsalltag von Physikern/Physikerinnen gewinnen. Neben dem Mitarbeiten in physikalischen Laboren, konnten die beiden aber auch ihre handwerklichen Fähigkeiten ( z.B. beim Löten) testen. Voller Stolz über die komplett selbsterstellte erste CAD-Zeichnung einer Pfeife, ging es anschließend an einen 3D-Drucker, der das kleine Andenken an ihre Zeit bei uns in die reale Welt übertrug.

February 2021

We warmly welcome Nihit and Hossein. Nihit will strengthen our working group as a postdoc. Hossein begins his career as a PhD student. We look forward to a successful and great time with you.

Ein weiteres Labor konnte vor wenigen Tagen in Betrieb genommen werden. Mi vereinten Kräften bauten unsere Arbeitsgruppenmitglieder mit den Spezialisten der Fa. kiutra Cryostats erfolgreich das Cryogen-free Magnetic Refrigerators-System auf.

Kick-Off Workshop of the DFG Priority program SPP 2244 on "2D Materials – Physics of
van der Waals [hetero]structures
" in Erfurt.

With our project partner Prof. Tim Wehling from Bremen University we are proud to participate in the just funded SPP 2244 with our project "Correlated miniband and multivalley physics in twisted transition metal dichalcogenides".


The SPP 2244 is coordinated by the steering committee headed by Prof. Thomas Heine from TU Dresden. Prof. Ursula Wurstbauer is part of the steering committee together with Profs. Jaroslav Fabian (University of Regensburg), Janina Maultzsch (FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg), Christoph Stampfer (RWTH Aachen).
