Dirk Meyners joined the Inorganic Functional Materials Group in 2007. Since 2008, he is Scientific Director of the Kiel Nanolaboratory. His research interests concentrate on the magnetism of thin films and microstructures, and the investigation of sensor concepts based on phenomena such as tunneling magnetoresistance, magnetostrictive, and magnetoelectric effects.
