Patrik Recher

Patrik Recher is an Emmy Noether group leader (at the assistant professor level) at Würzburg University, Germany. He received his Ph.D. from Basel University, Switzerland, in 2003, which was followed by postdoctoral positions at Stanford University, US, and at Leiden University, Netherlands. His research interests are focused on theoretical aspects of mesoscopic physics, like transport phenomena in graphene and topological insulators as well as spin-entanglement generation in nanoscale systems.

A line defect that seems to naturally form in graphene grown on a nickel substrate may provide additional control of transport characteristics.
