Prof. Dr. Dieter Kölle


Member of the board of directors of the "Center for Light Matter Interaction, Sensors and Analytics" (LISA+)

Curriculum Vitae


  • Experimental physics V -- solid state physics

Research fields

  • Superconductivity: basic properties & devices (electric transport and noise in thin films, Josephson junctions and SQUIDs; nanoSQUIDs for the investigation of small spin systems)

  • Superconductor cold atom hybrid systems (superconducting microtraps, microwave resonators coupled to atom clouds)

  • Non-linear effects in superconductors (ratchets, negative mobility)
  • Thin film technology and nanostructures (metals, transition metal oxides)

  • Magnetism (spin-polarized transport, nanomagnets)
  • Imaging techniques: low-temperature scanning electron/laser microscopy (imaging electric transport properties, vortex imaging, Kerr microscopy)

Publications (in scientific journals, public material, book contributions)
