Alexander Ako Khajetoorians has been full professor and head of the SPM department, at the Institute for Molecules and Materials, since fall 2014. His research focuses on characterizing and manipulating the electronic and magnetic properties of quantum materials at the scale of a single atom. Utilizing scanning probe microscopy, he has helped advance numerous spin-resolved methods. He has established one of the most advanced and high precision laboratories in the world at Radboud University, with the highest resolution microscope in the Netherlands, dedicated toward understanding and ultimately utilizing the novel properties of new materials for energy-efficient information technology and sensing. He has been awarded prestigious personal grants, such as an Emmy Noether group (DFG) in 2013, a VIDI grant (NWO) in 2015, and an ERC Consolidator Grant in 2018 (SPINAPSE). Prof. Khajetoorians has also been awarded the Gerhard Ertl Young Investigator Award in 2012, and the Nicholas Kurti European Prize in 2014.
