Uli Zeitler appointed Professor Semiconductors and Nanostructures in High Magnetic Fields

Date of news: 28 March 2017

Dr. Uli Zeitler has been appointed as a Professor of Semiconductors and Nanostructures in High Magnetic Fields at the Faculty of Science of Radboud University as of 15 March 2017.

Uli Zeitler (1964, Schaffhausen, Switzerland) studied Physics in Konstanz and Grenoble and obtained his PhD degree – summa cum laude – from the University of Konstanz in 1994 for work performed at the Grenoble High Magnetic Field Laboratory.

After postdocs in Nijmegen and Nottingham he was appointed research and teaching associate at the Leibniz Universität Hannover where he completed his habilitation thesis in 2001.

He joined the Nijmegen High Field Magnet Laboratory as an Associate Professor in 2002 and was actively involved in transforming it from a national research laboratory into a world-leading internationally recognised facility. He has published more than 150 papers in the fields of semiconductors, nanostructures, magnetism and superconductivity.

Semiconductors and Nanostructures in High Magnetic Fields

High magnetic fields are a crucial parameter for uncovering often surprising properties of new materials in the early stages of the innovation chain. Uli Zeitler brings a broad experience in the field with a specific focus on semiconductors at reduced dimensionality and he has established national and international collaboration with world-leading scientists in the field. Examples of his research activity cover materials such as graphene and other 2D materials, oxide heterostructures, topolocical insulators and Weyl semimetals; all of them have been discovered only quite recently.

High Field Magnet Laboratory

The High Field Magnet Laboratory, jointly operated by the Radboud University and The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO), is one of the few facilities worldwide with continuous high magnetic fields above 30 Tesla.
HFML is member of the European Magnetic Field Laboratory (EMFL), the European collaboration of high magnetic field laboratories in Nijmegen, Dresden, Grenoble and Toulouse.
HFML is scientifically embedded in the Institute for Molecules and Materials (IMM), an interdisciplinary research institute in chemistry and physics at the Faculty of Science of Radboud University.
