Dirk Guldi, professor and chair of physical chemistry at Friedrich Alexander University, gave a lecture, “Nanostructured Carbon Materials and their Applications,” on Monday, February 5.
Guldi focuses on the application of spectroscopic and microscopic techniques to a variety of molecular systems designed specifically to explore the nature of the chemical, physical and photophysical properties of new molecular hybrids, quantum dots, quantum rods and nanoparticles.
Among other things, he has been director of the Notre Dame Radiation Laboratory and professor in the physics department, University of Notre Dame. He is a fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and has received a number of awards, including the Heisenberg Fellowship, Japan Society for the Promotion of Science Award, and more.
Guldi received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. from the University of Cologne. He has written 553 research papers, 27 book chapters, and 62 proceedings.
