From 22 June, Humboldt Awardee Victor Klimov of Los Alamos National Laboratory (US) will spend three weeks as a guest researcher at the Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden (cfaed) of Technische Universität Dresden (TUD). Prof. Alexander Eychmüller, Chair for Physical Chemistry/Electrochemistry at TUD will host the physicist and worldwide leading expert in the research on nanocrystals. On 3 July, Klimov will give a public lecture at the TUD Cluster of Excellence for Microelectronics to present his research in the area of nanocrystal quantum dots and optical amplification in nanocrystals. He will be lecturing on recent developments in American nano-solar research.

Dresden, Germany | Posted on June 20th, 2014

In the beginning of the year, the Russian scientist received the €60.000-award of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation which aims at supporting research stays in Germany. Thus, the Physicist plans to visit Ludwig Maximilian Universität (LMU) in Munich. At the physics department of LMU Munich, he will visit Prof. Jochen Feldmann, coordinator of the Cluster of Excellence Nanosystems Initiative Munich.

Victor Klimov completed his doctor of philosophy (PhD) and doctor of science (D.Sc.) degrees in Russia at the Moscow State University where he studied condensed matter physics and laser optics. He then moved to the Institute for Semiconductors at RWTH Aachen as an Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellow. Since 1995, he has worked at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in the United States. Klimov is director of the Center for Advanced Solar Photophysics in Los Alamos, which is working under the supervision of the US Department of Energy.

The Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden (cfaed) is the Cluster of Excellence for Microelectronics of Technische Universität Dresden. This research platform unites eleven partner institutes with about 300 scientists who are working in the fields of electrical engineering, computer science, material science, physics, chemistry, biology, and mathematics.


About Technische Universitaet Dresden
The Technical University of Dresden is one of the top universities in Germany and Europe: strong in research and considered first-rate with respect to the range and the quality of the study programmes it offers, it is also closely interconnected with culture, business and society. As a modern comprehensive, multi-discipline university and with its 14 faculties it has a broad and diverse scientific spectrum that only few other universities in Germany are able to match. It is Saxony’s largest university. The large campus family of the TU Dresden is comprised of 37,000 students and approximately 7,900 employees, about 4,400 of whom are budget-funded – among them 524 professors – and another roughly 3,500 who work as grant-supported employees.
With its Institutional Strategy or Zukunftskonzept in German - “The Synergetic University”, the Cluster of Excellence “cfaed – Centre for Advancing Electronics Dresden” and the two follow-up proposals, “Centre for Regenerative Therapies Dresden (CRTD)” and “Dresden International Graduate School for Biomedicine and Bioengineering (DIGS-BB)”, the TU Dresden on 15 June 2012 achieved the title of University of Excellence in the first phase of the Excellence Initiative launched by the German federal and state governments. This means that it is one of Germany’s eleven universities of excellence.
