Univ.-Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Georg Düsberg Univ.-Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Georg Düsberg

Georg graduated in Physical Chemistry at the University of Kassel, Germany. His PhD was conducted at the Max Planck Institute, Stuttgart, and Trinity College Dublin from 1997 - 2000 on a collaborative European project, where he dealt with purifying, assembling and imaging carbon nanotubes. During the work he was able to characterise individual carbon nanotubes by Raman spectroscopy for the first time. From 2001 - 2005 Georg worked at the Corporate Research Department of Infineon AG, in Munich, Germany. The research focus was on the integration of bottom-up grown structures into CMOS based devices. Wafer-scale chemical vapour deposition (CVD) of CNTs as well as the growth of individual nanotubes from lithographically defined nano-holes are among the achievements. Furthermore, they were able to produce the world's smallest transistor and the first power transistor with carbon nanotubes. From 2005 - 2007 Georg worked in the Thin Films Department of the Qimonda AG, Dresden, Germany on the implementation of new ultrathin carbon films into future DRAM technology. In July 2007 Georg moved to Dublin to take on a position as ETS Walton Researcher in the School of Chemistry in Trinity College Dublin and as Principal Investigator in CRANN and AMBER. In January 2017 Georg moved to the Bundeswehr University Munich to take on a chair in sensor technologies. Georg is an adjunct professor in the School of Chemistry, Trinity College Dublin and maintains strong ties with AMBER.
