Hi there, sorry for not getting back to you but starting a new group and having new responsibilities (e.g. involvement in new degree programmes for Material Science) can take (part of) the blame. Just as brief progress indicator, here a link to an interview of the Chemnitz University of Technology press office with me. (Photo: Uwe Meinhold)
The official short name of my group is OPKM, for Optics and Photonics of Condensed Matter. For the (very) long official name I refer you to the web page of the Institute of Physics at the TUC;-) The size of my group is growing slowly but steadily, and the lab building shows progress as well: setups for time correlated single photon counting to measure photoluminescence transients – e.g. to determine charge carrier recombination in perovskite solar cells – and for confocal measurements of luminescence are already available from my predecessor’s group: we just adapt them to our needs. Other setups, time resolved and steady state, are being built and come along nicely. Solar cell preparation is still improvised, using the glovebox system of a colleague and the evaporation chamber of another, until we get our own integrated glovebox/evaporator system. One of my main interests is still Organic Photovoltaics, and with my (PhD) background in inorganic photovoltaics I also look at the hybrid perovskite solar cell hype (as a hype is not necessarily a bad thing;-). What also remains is my joy to combine experiments and simulations (macroscopic device simulations, kinetic Monte Carlo simulations) to understand these systems.
If you are interested in joining us: I have two PhD positions available at present. Please check out the job offer (german; computer-translated here) and contact me.

Good to hear that and All the Best
Will you have a postdoc position in the nearest future? BTW nice to heard that everything are going well.
Unfortunately it seems I will not have a postdoc position available within the next ~6 months. Thereafter: depends on granted projects;-) Sorry! Carsten
The link for the PhD positions doesn’t work anymore. Have they been fulfilled ?
Good luck with this new group :-)
Hi, indeed so, already filled. I expect (well, hope for;) to have another position open within the next 3 months, and potentially another in 6 months. Cheers, Carsten
Hi Mr Carsten,
How can we get your email adress? Am very interested with the work you described and i would like us to talk about with more details.
Hi! Please find my email by going to my group page (link under “About”). Cheers
