Independent Research Group Leader: Prof. 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 started an own research group in 2014. Starting on June 1 2020, Frank joined TU München as Professor in Theoretical Methods in Spectroscopy.

M.Sc. Sebastian Hutsch

Sebastian finished his B. Sc. degree in Physics at the TU Dresden in 2014 with a thesis on ferroelectric lithography. After completing his Master's degree in this group, he is now doing his PhD thesis. He is involved in the research with a project on charge transport simulations.

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. He joined the group as a PhD student to work on simulations of charge-transport phenomena in molecular structures.

Dr. Sebastian Schellhammer

“Diplom” in Physics, Dresden University of Technology, Germany. Sebastian joined the group for his PhD which he successfully defended in Material Science (German: Dipl. Ing.) in 2020 with "summa cum laude"  He works on Organic Electronics Materials.
