Research areas:

In his research, Dieter Süss deals with magnetization dynamics and thermal activations in magnetic materials with a special focus on applications for memory and sensors, spintronics, inverse problems and 3D printing of magnets.

"My research spans the spectrum from basic magnetic research to applications in the areas of data storage, sensors and energy management. Magnetic systems promise a reduction in the energy used for each of these applications and thus make an important contribution to the Green Deal." (Dieter Süss)
