Editorial Team

Stefan Hildebrandt (Editor-in-Chief)
Stefan Hildebrandt has been Managing Editor of the physica status solidi journals from 2000–2012 and their Editor-in-Chief since 2013. Moreover, he is Editor-in-Chief of Annalen der Physik since 2014. He has been with the Editorial Office at Wiley-VCH in Berlin since 1999. Previously he studied and worked at the Universities of Halle (Germany) (Ph.D., 1988), Moscow and Cork (Ireland). He is a solid state physicist with main background in semiconductor and surface physics. His main tasks include the organization of peer-review and special issues as well as article acquisition for the journals.
Sabine Bahrs (Deputy Editor)
Sabine is a solid state physicist who studied at the University of Manchester (then Institute of Science and Technology), UK, and the Technical University Berlin, Germany. She obtained a Ph.D. for her research on optical spectroscopy and high-temperature superconductors and joined the Editorial Office of pss after a post-doc in 2006. Over the following years she was responsible for several pss sister journals in turn and is currently the series editor of pss (b). Her tasks encompass peer-review editing and working with guest editors on special issues.
Nadezda Panarina (Editor)
Nadezda studied physics at the Kazan State University (Russia) and obtained a Ph.D. for her research in the field of high-temperature superconductivity and radio-frequency spectroscopy. During her postdoctoral research as a Marie-Curie fellow she worked on electrical and thermal transport in low-dimensional magnetic systems at the Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research in Dresden (Germany). Nadezda joined Wiley in 2014 as an Editor of physica status solidi.
Till von Graberg (Editor pss (a))
Till von Graberg received his diploma from the University of Marburg, completing his research towards a diploma thesis jointly at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces, Potsdam-Golm. He obtained his PhD at the University of Gießen and joined Wiley in 2012.
Yan Li (Editor pss (a))
Yan obtained his Ph.D. in chemistry from Tsinghua University in 2009. He subsequently carried out postdoctoral study focusing on the modification of semiconductor surface in University of Houston as well as Wageningen University. He joined Wiley in 2012, first in the editorial group of Small and since 2013 as an editor for physica status solidi. Yan is based in Beijing.
Lulu Ma (Editor pss (a))
