Biographic Information and Research Interests

Martin Salinga, born in 1979, is a permanent academic staff member at the institute for physics of new materials at RWTH Aachen University. After a total of two years abroad with research stays at Harvard University and the IBM Almaden Research Center in the Silicon Valley he returned to his alma mater, RWTH Aachen, at the end of 2006. Here he continued his studies on the switching behaviour of phase change materials. After receiving his doctoral degree in physics he accepted a permanent position as leader of a research group in summer 2008. Since July 2011 he is principal investigator in the collaborative research centre 'Nanoswitches' and as manager of this consortium he is also member of the steering committee. Together with his team he investigates dynamics of resistively switching materials and their application in novel electronics.
