About

Carsten DeibelWelcome! My name is Carsten Deibel, and this is my blog on mostly science-related issues concerning my field of interest, the physics of disordered materials. See you;-)

Short CV

Dr. Carsten Deibel obtained his Master of Philosophy (Physics) in 2000 from University of Sussex, Brighton. His PhD research was done ain the group of Prof. Jürgen Parisi at the University of Oldenburg, Germany; it concerned the characterisation of defects in inorganic thin film solar cells made of Cu(In,Ga)(S,Se)2 in cooperation with Shell Solar (now Avancis). He obtained his PhD in natural sciences (Physics) in 2002. From 2003-2005, he had a postdoctoral position at the Interuniversity Microelectronics Center, Leuven, Belgium, in the Polymer and Molecular Electronics Group of Prof. Paul Heremans, working on polymer solar cells and discotic liquid crystalline devices. From 2005-2014, he was group leader in Prof. Vladimir Dyakonov’s Chair of Experimental Physics VI in Würzburg, where he was responsible for the fundamental research of charge generation and transport in organic semiconductors and optoelectronic devices, with direct relevance to organic and hybrid photovoltaics. In 2010, he was selected to join the Förderkolleg of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities.

Early 2014, Carsten Deibel started his own group at Chemnitz University of Technology.
