Dr. Axel Hoffmann is a Materials Scientist at the Materials Science Division of the Argonne National Laboratory. He received his Ph.D. in physics from the University of California, San Diego, in 1999 and was a postdoctoral fellow at the Los Alamos National Laboratory before joining the Argonne National Laboratory as a staff member in 2001. His research interests encompass a wide variety of magnetism related subjects, including basic properties of magnetic heterostructures, spin transport in novel geometries, and biomedical applications of magnetism. His main research focus has recently been on pure spin currents investigated by magnetotransport and magnetization dynamics measurements.
