Philip Hofmann, Aarhus University, Denmark
Title: Electronic structure of clean and adsorbate-covered Bi2Se3
Philip Hofmann was born in Berlin in 1967. He studied physics at the Free University, Berlin, and did his PhD research at the Fritz-Haber-Institute of the Max Planck Society, also in Berlin. He stayed at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, USA, as a Feodor Lynen Fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. In 1998, he moved to the University of Aarhus, Denmark, where he is now a professor at the Department of Physics and Astronomy and also associated with the Synchrotron Radiation Source and the Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO). His research is primarily focused on the electronic structure of solids and their surfaces.
