Postdoctoral researcher, Dortmund University
Dr. Jörg Debus earned his PhD in 2012 studying spin interactions of carriers in semiconductor nanostructures for applications in the quantum information technology and spin-electronics. Now, he is working as postdoctoral researcher, by supervising two laboratory teams, at the chair of Experimental Physics 2, TU Dortmund University, Germany. During his PhD time and long-term research visits, he has strengthened the cooperation with the Ioffe Physical-Technical Institute in St. Petersburg, Russia, and the Institute of Physics in Warsaw, Poland. There, he has performed spin-flip Raman scattering experiments on III-V quantum dots and wells, magneto-optical studies of nitrogen vacancies in diamond as well as dynamics measurements of the spin and energy transfer in diluted magnetic semiconductors.
Dr. Debus was involved in the DFG priority program “Spintronics” and in the project of the Mercator Research Center Ruhr about revealing the level structures of excitonic complexes in zero-dimensional semiconductors. Currently, he is leading a project within the German-Russian Collaborative Research Center TRR160 focusing on the coherent manipulation of interacting spin excitations in novel semiconductor structures, embracing also two-dimensional transition metal dichalcogenides. He has published several articles in international journals and has presented invited and contributed talks at international conferences. For his research achievements, based on his Russian and Polish cooperations, prizes have been awarded.
