Dr. Philipp Paulitschke joins CeNS as Extraordinary Member
Dr. Philipp Paulitschke studied Physics at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University (LMU) Munich. In 2006 he worked on his Diploma thesis at the chair of Prof. Kotthaus. During this period he developed a new method to fabricate inverted conical GaAs-Nanowires. In his PhD studies he investigated the mechanical properties of these nanowires in different environments. After finishing his PhD in 2011 he adapted his know-how in solid state physics to biological systems, like human cancer cells and bacteria. In this time he filed three patent applications and received a 1.2 Mio Euro BMBF-grant to continue his work in developing high throughput screening techniques. Since 2014 he is leading a research group at the chair of Prof. Rädler.
