farle.jpgMichael Viktor Nikolaus Farle received his diploma, doctorate, and habilitated doctorate in experimental physics from the Free University of Berlin in 1984, 1989, and 1998, respectively. During this time, he spent three and a half years as a senior research fellow at Stanford University, California, and the University of Strasbourg, France. In 1999, he changed his job to the technical University of Braunschweig, Germany, where he became a full Professor. Since 2002, he has been a Professor at the University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany, where he also held the position of Vice-rector for research and Junior research staff. He coordinated two European research networks and served as Vice-speaker of the joint research centre: magnetic heterostructures (SFB 491). In 2016, he became an associate Professor at the Baltic Federal University named after Immanuel Kant, Kaliningrad, Russia, and is an adjunct Professor at Sharif University of technology, Tehran, Iran. Michael Farle is the author of more than 220 technical articles (status 2018) in peer-reviewed journals, including book chapters and review articles. Most of Michael Farle's works belong to the sections of physics and astronomy and materials science, where about 90 % of publications are scientific articles published in leading international thematic journals

Michael Farle's research interests include the study of the formation processes and physical properties of Geissler compounds and triple carbides. Despite the fact that these compounds have been known since the beginning of the last century and their physical properties have been studied in a wide range of compositions, however, recently with the participation of Michael Farle, interesting new magnetic properties have been discovered:

a) the so-called " shell ferromagnetism” in some Heusler alloys, which leads to quasi-monopole magnetic behaviour, and

b) the so-called “MAX - phases”, where “M” stands for 3d/4d metal, “A” is a group IV element, and “X” indicates carbon (or nitrogen), which, in the particular case of the Mn2GaC phase, show exceptionally large magnetostriction.
