Jürgen P. Rabe

Jürgen P. Rabe has been Professor of Physics of Macromolecules at the Department of Physics at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin since 1994. He researches the correlation between the structure and dynamics of molecular systems and interfaces with mechanical, electronic, optical and (bio-)chemical characteristics, from molecular to macroscopical length and time scales. He is Founding Chairman of the »Integrative Research Institute for the Sciences – IRIS Adlershof« at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.

Research fields

Texturing and mechanical characteristics: illustration and manipulation of singular macromolecules and Supramolecular systems in the Force Microscope (SFM). Molecular electronics and electronic characteristics: tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy (STM/STS) of molecular systems. Optical active molecular systems: optical spectroscopy of molecular and organic/inorganic systems.
