Research area:

I am working on the theory of magnetic structures and excitations in condensed matter systems with localized moments, i.e. primarily systems containing ions from the series of the Lanthanides or the Actinides. I have written a monograph on the subject in collaboration with Allan Mackintosh:

Jens Jensen and Allan R. Mackintosh: Rare Earth Magnetism: Structures and Excitations

published by Clarendon Press, Oxford, England in 1991.

Des McMorrow, Henrik Rønnow and I have edited the proceedings of Magnetism in Metals, a symposium in memory of Allan Mackintosh (1936-95), Copenhagen, August 26-29, 1996 and published by The Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters in Matematisk-fysiske Meddelelser 45 (1997).
