Professor Georg Stefan Duesberg

Adjunct Professor (Chemistry)


Adjunct Professor (CRANN)

Prof Georg Duesberg graduated in Physical Chemistry from the University of Kassel, Germany. He worked at the Max-Planck-Institute Stuttgart and Trinity College Dublin from 1997-2001 on a collaborative European project, were he dealt with purifying, assembling and imaging carbon nanotubes. He was the first person to characterise individual carbon nanotubes by Raman spectroscopy. He received his PhD from the University of Tuebingen, Germany in 2000. From 2001-2005 he worked at the Infineon AG, Corporate Research Department, Munich, Germany. Here his research was focused on the integration of bottom-up structures grown into CMOS based devices. Wafer scale CVD as well as the growth of individual nanotubes from lithographically defined nano-holes are among his achievements. From 2005-2007 Prof Duesberg worked in the Thin Films Department of the Qimonda AG, Dresden, Germany on the implementation of new carbon nanostructured films into future DRAM technology. In July 2007 he moved to Dublin to take on a position as a Principal Investigator in CRANN and Associate Professor in the School of Chemistry, Trinity College Dublin. He is a recognised world leader in the area of the integration of carbon nanotubes into CMOS technology.
