Border Left


This year´s July, Uwe D. Zeitner was appointed as an extraordinary professor (apl. Prof.) for Experimental Physics / Micro- and Nanostructure Technology at the FSU Jena, and will take over the responsibility for the research group "Microstructure technology" out of Ernst-Bernhard Kley's hands in September.

Here, at our institute, Uwe Detlef Zeitner began his scientific career as student assistant at the department of Dr. E.-Bernhard Kley and this resulted 1994 in a research work on an apparatus called "Linsenschreiber" and diploma thesis in this research group. In 1999, his dissertation followed in the field of micro-structured elements inside of laser resonators and in 2008 his habilitation in experimental physics. After the doctorate, U.D. Zeitner, who was born and grown up in Frankfurt / O., works at Fraunhofer IOF, where he headed - starting in 2004 - the research group "Fundamentals", and since 2006 he leads the Center for Advanced Micro- and Nano-Optics (CMN-Optics) together with E. -B. Kley. Within the framework of the Center for Innovation Competence ZIK ultra optics, Dr. Zeitner was also research leader of the "Advanced Technologies" group at the IAP since 2011, which addressed UV-photolithography for the production of optical nanostructures.

The research area of Uwe D. Zeitner can be described as "development of micro- and nano-technological solutions for optical applications". This was accompanied, among other things, by the development of high-performance gratings for applications in laser pulse compression or space-borne spectroscopy.

We are looking forward to exciting and fruitful discussions about ideas that hopefully will find realization in a variety of projects!
Warmly welcome!
