Group at École de Physique des Houches

From the 11th to the 16th of February 2018, members of the group attended the joint workshop Spin mechanics-5 and nanoMRI-6 at the École de Physique des Houches in Chamonix, France. The meeting brought together an interdisciplinary community of scientists focusing on a variety of topics including, nanometer-scale magnetic resonance imaging, hybrid spin mechanical systems, spintronics, optomechanics, ultrasensitive force sensing, and magnonics. Ph.D student Nicola Rossi, post-docs Dr. Boris Groß and Dr. Floris Braakman, and Prof. Poggio attended the week-long meeting and made presentations.




  • Bike Tour 2018

    On Friday, May 11th, 2018, the group went on a day-long bicycle tour of nearby Alsace, France.

  • Davide, Martino, and the Probe

    Prof. Poggio and Ph.D. student Davide Cadeddu are shown here with our custom-made 3He scanning probe microscope.

  • Nanowires as Scanning Force Sensors

    A new type of atomic force microscope (AFM) uses nanowires as tiny sensors. Unlike standard AFM, the device with a nanowire sensor enables measurements of both the size and direction of forces.

  • SNI Video 2014

    In December 2014, the group was featured in a Swiss Nanoscience Institute (SNI) video on the Masters and Ph.D. school on nanoscience here at the University of Basel. (Video)

  • Group Kart Outing

    On the afternoon of Thursday the 25.11.2021, the group took some time to go karting.
