Meet Andreas Heinrich

Dr. Andreas Heinrich is a member of the research staff at the IBM Almaden Research Center in San Jose, CA. He is the project leader for scanning probe microscopy. The experiments conducted by Dr. Heinrich’s group aim to extend the basic knowledge about the physics, chemistry, and materials properties of atomic-scale structures with a focus on exploring potential applications of nanostructures for atomic-scale logic and data-storage. Heinrich joined the IBM research group of Dr. Donald Eigler as a postdoctoral researcher in 1998 where he built a next-generation low-temperature scanning tunneling microscope operating at temperatures below 1K and in high magnetic fields. In January 2005, Heinrich took over the leadership of the STM lab from Dr. Eigler. Heinrich is devoted to educating the general public about the excitement of nanotechnology through hands-on demonstrations, is the author or co-author of papers published in the highest-ranking international journals and has given over 50 invited talks at international conferences. Heinrich received his PhD in 1998 from the University of Goettingen in Germany where he studied the materials properties of ternary compound semiconductors.

i looked at your title for stanford meeting. you have a nanoscale resoluiton on STM. This is great! Is this electronic scheme? Do you have preprint or paper on that?

Hi, Dr. Heinrich

I’m Inhee Lee studying ‘Ferromagnetic Resonance Imaging using Magnetic Resonance Force Microscopy’ under Prof. Chris Hammel in Ohio State University. Now I’m looking for a postdoctoral position and I inquire the availability in your group. Thank you.
