Short bio

Matthias studied Technical Physics at the University of Ilmenau and got his Masters degree in August 2015.
In his Masters thesis he worked on a scanning probe based low energy electron emission lithography technique for reproducible patterning of arbitrary features with sub 10nm resolution. This method was used to manufacture and study nanowire devices as well as single electron transistors.
He joined our group in August 2015 and is presently developing a high power mid-infrared source with pico- to nanosecond tunable pulse length. This source will be used to investigate lattice driven phase transitions in complex oxides with a focus on dynamic coherent stabilization of the transient state.

Matthias who successfully defended his dissertation "Metastable Light-Induced Superconductivity in K3C60" (Univ. Hamburg) via Zoom on December 8th 2020.
