Background and activities
Jostein Grepstad (1951) is Professor at Department of Electronics and Telecommunications, where he is part of the Nanoelectronics and Photonics research group. Professor Grepstad has both his MSc (1975) and a PhD (1982) from Department of Physics, NTH.
Area of expertise
His present research is focused on studies of epitaxial oxide thin films and heterostructures, incl. high-Tc superconductors, ferroelectrics, and ferro-/antiferromagnetic oxides, with special emphasis on domain formation and magnetic coupling in FM/AFM nanostructures. He also has extensive experience in surface and interface analysis with electron spectroscopy and synchrotron radiation techniques.
