Responsibilities/Job Description

QuSpin carries out research in theoretical as well as experimental fields. Parts of the experimental activities are based on spin- and angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy (spin-ARPES). For these activities modern instrumentation (momentum microscope with 2D imaging spin filter) is available at NTNU. Additional experiments are carried out at synchrotron radiation facilities. The candidate will use spin-ARPES to study the interplay of spin-orbit interaction and magnetism in different material settings, including magnetic topological insulators, complex ferromagnets and Weyl systems.
