Initially studying philosophy, Hugo Dil finished his undergraduate studies in physics at the Technical University of Delft. After a Ph.D. at the Fritz Haber Institute in Germany he moved to the University of Zurich and the Swiss Light Source where he became subgroup leader. Since 2013 he has held a Swiss National Science Foundation funded professorship at the Institute of Physics at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne. His experimental research interest focuses on how reduced dimensionality and symmetry influence the spin properties of materials. Recent interests also include the question of the nature of time.


Finding Spin Hedgehogs in Chiral Crystals

The observation of radial spin texture in chiral tellurium crystals could lead to greater control over electron transport.  Read More »
