Research interests
Dielectric approaches to physical aging, glass forming organic and metallic materials

Thanks to her consistent and creative approach, Dr. Birte Riechers has pushed the limits of dielectric spectroscopy in several non-standard situations. Her innovative experimental studies on the mechanisms of equilibration in dielectric media subjected to strong electric fields and on physical aging by advanced dielectric setups brought to a deeper understanding of the response of materials to an external disturbance.
