Humboldt Research Award for Professor Seth Marder

Prof. Dr. Seth Marder from the Georgia Institute of Technology (USA) will be a visiting researcher at the Department of Physics, News from June 12, 2018

Seth Marder, Professor of Chemistry and Materials Science and Engineering (courtesy) at the Georgia Institute of Technology, was awarded the renowned research prize from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. Seth Marder is internationally recognized for his leadership in developing structure-property relationships for organic and metallo-organic materials for optical and electronic applications. Among his accomplishments he created a new class of extremely efficient two-photon absorbing materials that helped to enable the field of two-photon 3D microfabrication, which is now a commerical technology used around the world. He has also contributed to the development of organic electronic materials, in particular dopants that can be used to convert semiconducting materials to materials with substantial conductivities. While in Germany, he will continue his collaborative studies of the effects of dopants on the properties of both organic and inorganic materials. Professor Seth Marder is hosted by Professor Nobert Koch at IRIS Adlershof and the Department of Physics of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.

We heartily congratulate Prof. Marder and are looking forward to an exciting and productive collaboration!
