Thomas Schmaltz

Portrait of Thomas Schmaltz

Biography

Thomas studied Materials Science and Engineering at the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU), Germany, and received his Diploma (master degree) in 2011, after preparing his diploma thesis at Imperial College London under supervision of Prof. Natalie Stingelin, Dr. Martyn McLachlan (both Imperial) and Prof. Christoph J. Brabec (FAU). He moved back to Erlangen to work on Self-Assembled Monolayer Field-Effect Transistors in the group Organic Materials and Devices (OMD) of Prof. Marcus Halik, finishing his PhD with the title Molecular Order in P- and N-Type Self-Assembled Monolayer Field-Effect Transistors in 2014. In 2015, Thomas joined the Institute of Materials at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), where he is working as postdoctoral researcher with a Feodor Lynen Research Fellowship from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in the Laboratory of Macromolecular and Organic Materials (LMOM) of Prof. Holger Frauenrath.

Research Interests

Thomas is a materials engineer with a focus on scientific research questions in the field of organic semiconductors, particularly with respect to the correlation between molecular structure, thin film order and electrical properties of organic semiconductors in electronic devices.

Awards and Fellowships

2015 Feodor Lynen Research Fellowship for Postdocs from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.

Degrees
