Short biography

Martin Kopte finished his studies at the University of Technology Dresden, Germany, in 2012 obtaining a Diploma in Physics doing research on exchanged coupled Sm-Co/Fe thin films. In the same year he joined the emerging group for Magnetic Nanomembranes led by Dr. Denys Makarov at the IFW Dresden as a PhD student.
