Our Research Topics

Magnetic Thin Films and Devices

We design and develop magnetic thin film systems and devices with tailored properties in specific fields selected to advantageously combine decades of experience in magnetic thin film materials, profound expertise in UHV sputter deposition with our world-wide unique know-how in high-resolution quantitative magnetic force microscopy.

Functional Thin Films

Based on our profound understanding of sputter deposition methods we design and fabricate functional thin films and coatings for biomedical applications using UHV lab-scale to industrial-scale HiPIMS coating equipment.

Magnetic and Multidimensional Scanning Force Microscopy

With decades of experience in the design, development and application of scanning probe microscopy methods we pioneer world-wide unique cantilever AFM instrumentation for applications ranging from high-resolution and quantitative magnetic force microscopy to UHV.
