Manfred Albrecht received his PhD in Physics from the University of Konstanz in 1999 with a study on epitaxial thin films and superlattices. Thereafter he switched to the field of magnetic thin alloy films and nanostructures where he participated in the development of bit patterned media for magnetic storage applications as postdoctoral research fellow at the IBM Almaden Research Center in San Jose (USA). In 2007 he became Full Professor for Experimental Physics at the Chemnitz University of Technology. In 2013 he was appointed Full Professor for Experimental Physics at the University of Augsburg. His current research activities include magnetic thin films and nanostructures, magnetic coupling phenomena as well as thermoelectric thin films. He has more than 150 pre-reviewed papers, holds 9 patents, and serves as Associate Editor of the Journal Frontiers in Materials. He is also a senior member of IEEE.
