Dr. Jan Hoß

Dr. Jan Hoß studied Physics at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) where he graduated in 2012. In his Diploma thesis he investigated the calibration of pixel detector modules for the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider.

From 2013 to 2017 he continued working with the CMS experiment as a Ph.D. student at ETH Zurich. The title of his dissertation is „Search for Supersymmetry with Multiple Charged Leptons at sqrt(s) = 13 TeV with CMS and Radiation Tolerance of the Readout Chip for the Phase I Upgrade of the Pixel Detector“. Besides an analysis of proton-proton collisions to search for physics beyond the standard model of particle physics, he contributed to the development of a new CMS pixel detector, a silicon-based tracking detector for charged particles. The main focus of the latter topic were investigations and improvements of the radiation tolerance of the detector’s front-end electronics.

Since 2017, Dr. Jan Hoß is employed as research associate at ISC. Here he is developing n-type solar cells with charge carrier selective contacts in order to establish industrial maturity of a new generation of highly efficient solar cells.
