Sabine Richert works in the field of molecular spintronics between biophysics and chemistry. The spin or electron angular momentum is an invariable internal particle property and essentially determines the structure of matter. In her research, Richert puts electrons in molecules into different spin states by exciting them with light, and then manipulates them. In this way, she explores the physical and chemical properties of such multi-spin systems. In doing so, she is laying the foundations in the field of spintronics, which will significantly advance quantum technology. Richert uses a special approach here that combines various electron spin resonance methods with fast optical spectroscopy and theoretical calculations. The change of spin states is also of great technical interest because it enables information to be stored and read out in molecules.
