Speaker Biography (Harald Hoppe)
Harald Hoppe received his diploma degree in Physics at the University of Konstanz, Germany in 2000. He prepared his diploma studies in polymer physics under the mentorship of Prof. Jacob Klein at the Department of Materials & Interfaces, Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel. Thereafter he received his doctorate degree (Ph.D.) at the Linz Institute for Organic Solar Cells (LIOS) under the mentorship of Prof. Niyazi Serdar Sariciftci at the Johannes Kepler University of Linz, Austria, in 2004. Since spring 2005 he joined the Experimental Physics group of Prof. Gerhard Gobsch at the Technical University Ilmenau as post-doctoral research assistant. He is currently working on his Habilitation with the main research activities in the field of organic optoelectronics with a special focus on polymer solar cells.
