Dr. Amit Finkler obtained his bachelor degrees in Electrical Engineering and Physics at Tel Aviv University.

He then moved to the Weizmann Institute of Science, doing his Master's thesis under the supervision of Profs. Amir Yacoby and Eli Zeldov, developing a unique superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID).

In his doctoral thesis, under the supervision of Prof. Zeldov, he worked on a novel scanning SQUID microscope for the study of magnetic phenomena on the nanoscale, which nowadays reaches a single electron spin sensitivity.

After a short interlude in industry in the field of thermoelectrics he moved back to the Weizmann Institute of Science for a post-doctoral position at the atomic scale physics laboratory before arriving in Stuttgart. (Picture: Grafiklabor Physik)
