Kirstine Junker Dalgaard

The past few decades have been rich in advancements in the field of condensed-matter physics. The discovery of the two-dimensional material graphene where electrons have high mobility, and the discovery of so-called topological phases, have opened the doors to new research areas. These material classes have potential applications in novel information technologies. During her PhD studies, Kirstine Junker Dalgaard researched the atomic structure and electronic properties of materials exhibiting some of these emergent phenomena.

The research contributes to the fundamental understanding of some material properties within condensed-matter physics.

The PhD study was completed at Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO) and Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Natural Sciences, Aarhus University.

This summary was prepared by the PhD student.
