Dr. Volker Macho
Prof. Hans. W Spiess
Research projects: IT service group
Volker Macho studied physics at the University of Münster and at the Free University of Berlin, where he gained his Master degree in 1977 on the theory of dynamic hyperfine interactions of highly ionized atoms, and his PhD on optical nucelar polarization studies in molecular crystals. He then spent a year at IBM in San Jose, California, working on magic angle spinning 13C-NMR at very low temperatures. After returning to Germany he worked with Siemens in the field of NMR imaging. He joined the MPI-P in 1985 and built up the EPR laboratory. His research interests include NMR imaging and lineshape analysis in 2H-NMR and EPR spectroscopy. Since 1985 Volker Macho is running the Computer Service Group, which is planning, organizing, coordinating and supporting the IT infrastructure at the institute.
