Armin Gölzhäuser

Armin Gölzhäuser studied physics at the University of Heidelberg and at the Arizona State University. In 1993 he received his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry with Prof. Michael Grunze from the University of Heidelberg. From 1994-1996 he was a Feodor Lynen Fellow at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with Prof. Gert Ehrlich. He then returned to Heidelberg where he received his habilitation in 2001. In 2003 he became an associate professor of physical chemistry at the University of Marburg. Later in the same year, he became a full professor of physics at the University of Bielefeld, where he holds a Chair of Supramolecular Systems and Surfaces. Armin Gölzhäuser's research is focused on the fabrication, characterization and application of low dimensional nanostructures, membranes, and exploration of charged particle microscopy. His laboratory operates modern analytical tools, among them electron microscopes, photoelectron spectrometers, scanning probes and the first helium ion microscope at a German university. He has a strong interest in the technological application of nanostructures, and in 2011 he founded CNM Technologies GmbH, a company dealing with applications of carbon nanomembranes.  He is a founder of the Bielefeld Institute for Nanoscience (BINAS), Associate Editor of the Beilstein Journal of Nanotechnology, and a fellow of the American Vacuum Society (AVS).

Armin Gölzhäuser has co-edited the thematic issue "Focused particle beam-induced processing" in the Beilstein Journal of Nanotechnology.
