Research Area

Steffen Salomon began his studies in the field of mechanical engineering at the Ruhr-University Bochum in 2006. After finishing his prediploma he focused on micro-engineering, worked on the fabrication of Au micro-wires by selective oxidation of Au-W thin-film composition spreads and began a student assistantship at the chair of MEMS materials by Prof. Alfred Ludwig. During his later studies he performed combinatorial studies on magnetocaloric materials and wrote his diploma thesis covering the fabrication and characterization of Co-Mn-Ge thin-film materials libraries. Since October 2013 he is a PhD student at Prof. Ludwigs group and continues his research on the Co-Mn-Ge material system investigating magnetic, structural and magnetocaloric properties as part of the DFG priority program 1599.
