Group Members

 

Independent Research Group Leader: Dr. Frank Ortmann

Frank Ortmann studied physics and received his doctorate with “summa cum laude” from the Friedrich Schiller University Jena in 2009 with a dissertation on the theory of charge transport in organic semiconductors. In the same year he joined CEA Grenoble (France) as postdoctoral fellow and was awarded a Marie-Curie Fellowship in 2010. In 2011 he moved to the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, Barcelona (Spain). In 2013 he joined the TU Dresden, where he is now leading a research group since 2014.

 

Dr. Thorsten Arnold

Thorsten Arnold did his Ph.D. at Haskoli Islands with the title “The influence of cavity photons on the transient transport of correlated electrons through a quantum ring with magnetic field and spin-orbit interaction” at the group of V. Gudmundsson in Iceland, supported by a scholarship from the Eimskip Fund of The University of Iceland. After receiving his doctorate in 2014, he moved to the group of Frank Ortmann at TU Dresden, where he does theoretical research on transport in organic semiconductors.

 

 

Dipl. Phys. Sebastian Schellhammer

“Diplom” in Physics, 2011, Dresden University of Technology, Germany. Sebastian is employed through cfaed and is jointly supervised with G. Cuniberti. He works on Organic Electronics Materials.

 

Dipl. Phys. Michel Panhans

Michel studied physics at the TU Dresden with specialization in the field of General Relativity. His diploma thesis in 2014 on “Newtonian BD-Spin-Moments and Gravito-magentism of the solar system” was realized at the Institute of Theoretical Physics and the chair of Astronomy of the TU Dresden. In 2014 he joined the group as a PhD student to work on simulations of charge-transport phenomena in molecular structures.

 

B. Sc. Sebastian Hutsch

Sebastian finished his B. Sc. degree in Physics at the TU Dresden in 2014 with a thesis on ferroelectric lithography. Now he continues towards the Master degree. He is involved in the research with a project on charge transport simulations.

 

B. Sc. Janna Rückert

Janna has done her Bachelor Thesis with us in 2015 and continues to work in the group as student assistant.
