New book chapter publication: Characterization of Graphene by Confocal Raman Spectroscopy

Site Content:


Welcome to the web page of the 2nd Institute of Physics A (Stampfer group) of the RWTH Aachen University.

Our research focuses on developing advanced processing technologies for studying and exploiting quantum mechanical phenomena in nanometer-scale solid-state devices. Our main activities presently lie in the fields of graphene, bismuth-based topological insulators, semiconductors, quantum dots, spin transport and confocal Raman spectroscopy.

We are member of Jülich-Aachen Research Alliance for Future Information Technologies (JARA-FIT) and we share our activities between the Physikzentrum in Aachen, and the Forschungszentrum Jülich.
