My name is Philippe Klemm and I work as an experimental physicist and
research associate at the University of Regensburg, Germany.
My academic career started researching magnetism as a member of the Dirk Grundler Group
at the University of Technology, Munich. Utilizing radio frequency
absorption measurements I investigated ferromagnet-semiconductor
hybrid structures and their behavior in magnetic and electric fields.
I observed pure spin currents (Spintronic
) as well as spin-precession
damping induced temperature changes.
In December 2010 I switched to a different range
of electromagnetic waves and a more interdisciplinary
joining the John Lupton Group
at the University of Regensburg, Regensburg, Germany. In my ongoing PhD
studies I use visible to near infrared spectroscopic methods on random structures.
These studies can be roughly divided into two topics: On the one hand random
metal surfaces and far field observation of plasmons (Plasmonics
on the other hand utilizing polymers and molecules embedded in organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs
for observation of spin-dependent effects (Polymerphysics
