Min-Jae Kim received her diploma in applied physics, at the Kyung-Hee University in Korea. After that, she commenced a MS in Physics by the University and performed her thesis on “superconductivity and charge density wave in the misfit-layer compound (SnSe)1.18(TiSe2)2” performing electrical and magnetic transport measurements.
After graduating in 2014, she worked at Max-Plank Institute for Solid State Research in the Solid State Spectroscopy dapartment of Bernhard Keimer, where she explored the study of spin frustration in Iridium-oxide compounds with synthesis of single crystal and magnetic transportation measurement and x-ray spectroscopy.
In 2016 she joined the Max-Planck Research Group for Ultrafast Spectroscopy and the 4th Physics Institute at the University of Stuttgart as a PhD-student.
In her studies Min-Jae aims to achieve optical control of superconductivity via vibrational stimulations exploring novel excitation machnisms in hybrid quantum materials.
