Physics of Supramolecular Systems, University Bielefeld
Armin Gölzhäuser studied physics at Heidelberg University and Arizona State University. In 1993 he received his Ph.D. from Heidelberg University. From 1993-1996 he was a Feodor Lynen Fellow at the University of Illinois. In 2001, he received his habilitation (Heidelberg) and in 2003 he became a professor of physical chemistry at Marburg University. In the same year, he became a professor of experimental physics at Bielefeld University. Armin Gölzhäuser’s research is focused on the fabrication, characterization and application of low dimensional nanostructures and functional materials. His laboratory operates modern analytical tools: electron microscopes, photoelectron spectrometers, scanning probes and a helium ion microscope (HIM). He has a strong interest in the technological application of nanostructures and in 2011, he founded CNM Technologies GmbH, a start-up company dealing with applications of carbon nanomembranes. He is the speaker of the Bielefeld Institute for Biophysics and Nanoscience (BINAS). He organized scientific conferences and he is an associate editor of the Beilstein Journal of Nanotechnology.
