Andrin Doll is a tenure track scientist in the LMU at the high-field instrument HAL-9500. Currently, his research interest revolve around the combination of µSR extended with external stimuli to study non-equilibrium dynamics in magnetic materials. Andrin Doll obtained his Masters degree in electrical engineering at the ETH Zürich. During his studies, he stayed eight months at EMPA Dübendorf working on scanning near-field optical microscopy. For his master thesis, he joined the Jeschke group at ETH Zürich and developed instrumentation and methodology for electron-nuclear polarization transfer. He pursued his PhD study in the same lab and focused on electron spin excitation by frequency-swept microwave pulses. To this end, he built several setups with frequencies ranging from 8 GHz to 95 GHz and demonstrated novel experiments for enhanced sensitivity and multi-dimensional spectroscopy. After his PhD, he joined the nanomagnetism group at CEA Saclay with a mobility fellowship from the SNSF and primary focus on detection of nuclear magnetic resonance using giant magneto-resistive sensors. He then joined the PSI in 2019 with the ambition to combine magnetic resonance spectroscopy with large-facility research. Initially, he was a PostDoc on a PSI-internal CROSS project between the MICMAG group at SLS and the LEM group at SµS and devised experiments for microwave-driven spin systems probed by either X-rays or muons. Subsequently, he joined the QPS group to further explore microwave-driven systems, including experiments at the SwissFEL. At the end of 2023, he started his tenure track position in the LMU.
