Thomas Pichler is a professor at the University of Vienna. He obtained his Ph.D. in 1993 at the University of Vienna and later spent 15 years at the Institute for Solid State Research IFW-Dresden before he returned in 2008 to Vienna. His research interests are in material science, solid-state physics and spectroscopy, mesoscopic physics, correlated systems, carbon nanostructures (nanotubes, fullerenes, graphene), and low dimensional quantum solids. In 2009 he was recognized as an Outstanding Referee by the American Physical Society.


Viewpoint: Unraveling Electron Chirality in Graphene

Photoemission performed with circular polarized light can detect the chirality of electronic wave functions in single- and double-layer graphene. Read More »
