Dr. Andrej Singer
Dr. Andrej Singer, Postdoctoral Fellow, 2013-present
Ph.D. Physics, University of Hamburg, 2013

Research Topic: My research focuses on understanding of the structure and its dynamics
in nanoscale materials by using new generation x-ray sources, primarily synchrotrons and
x-ray free-electron lasers. I am interested in a wide range of systems – spanning from
fundamental correlated electron materials and applied “real” materials in operando devices
to photonic crystals, particularly those present in nature.
