Joachim Fritzsche, Ph.D.


My research interests range from semiconductor and superconductor technologies (topic of my diploma thesis and doctoral thesis) to nano-optics, catalysis and biosensor technology in life sciences, with all of these areas being linked under the special aspect of nanotechnology. As the main responsible for the nanofabrication that underlies the research in the Langhammer lab, I have many years of experience with virtually all standard processes in cleanroom environments - and still have an intrinsic curiosity and motivation to push nanofabrication beyond its current state of the art.

Prizes and other achievements

By early 2023 my scientific work has resulted in 65 articles in internationally peer-reviewed journals with more than 1000 citations and an h-index of 21 (Google Scholar), one book, one book chapter and one patent. In addition to my scientific achievements, I have also founded two high-tech companies, the first providing nanofabrication services ( ) and the second commercializing a revolutionary microscopy technology invented in the Langhammer lab ( ).
