Humboldt Research Award for Andreas J. Heinrich

The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation grants annually up to 100 Humboldt Research Awards to internationally leading researchers of all disciplines from abroad in recognition of their academic record to date.


Professor Andreas J. Heinrich, Director of the Center of Quantum Nanoscience at the Institute for Basic Science in Seoul, South Korea, has received a Humboldt Research Award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.

Professor Heinrich is one of the most distinguished scientists in the field of nanoscience.  He has made highly innovative contributions to this field of research and is widely known for his pioneering contributions to spin excitation spectroscopy and the precise manipulation of atoms using scanning tunneling microscopy (STM). Heinrich is particularly known for his numerous pioneering measurements of the spin properties of atomically precise structures at the nanometer scale, an endeavor that bridges the gap between spintronics and quantum physics and provides a fundamental understanding of how nanosystems interact with their environment. A topic of critical importance for the future development of quantum science and technology. In collaboration with the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart he will explore the quantum properties of single spins on superconductors. Professor Heinrich is hosted by Professor Kern of the Nanoscale Science Department.
