Prof. Norbert Koch
Norbert Koch studied technical physics at the Technische Universität Graz (Austria), where he also received a doctorate in solid state physics in 2000. He spent the following two years as postdoctoral researcher at Princeton University and worked on organic/metal interfaces and covalently surface-bound self-assembled monolayers. After moving to Berlin in 2003, he started building his own group, and contributed to the fundamental understanding of interfaces of organic semiconductors with inorganic materials and devising methods to optimize interface electronic properties. Since 2009 he is professor at the Department of Physics of Humboldt-Universität, and since 2010 leads a Joint Research Group at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin. More recently, doping of organic semiconductors, and interfacial phenomena with perovskites and 2D materials became part of his research agenda.
