Dr Joachim Glatz-Reichenbach

Joachim Glatz-Reichenbach was born and grew up in Nürnberg. He completed his studies in Physics with an experimental diploma thesis in the field of Mößbauer Emission Spectroscopy in 1986 at the Faculty of Physics of the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg.

In the period 1987-1991, he was working on his PhD thesis with the subject Structure, Dynamics and Electrical Properties of Thin Ferroelectric Polymer Films under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Klaus Dransfeld at the University of Konstanz.

In the following period 1992-1993, he was employed as a post-doc visiting scientist at the Eastman Kodak Corporation in the department Imaging Materials Characterization in Rochester, NY, USA.

From August 1993 to December 2004, he was working in various positions as project- and team-leader at the ABB Research Centre, Baden-Dättwil in Switzerland, with focus on the development of functional non-linear materials for electrotechnical applications, i. e. electrical contacts and power switches, as well as on "organic electronics", surface- and nanotechnology.

In the following years from 2005 - 2008, Joachim held the position of the product development manager for data storage and photovoltaics at Umicore Materials AG in Balzers, Liechtenstein. In this position he was responsible for coordinating between R&D and the marketing department as well as customers for large area coating and thin film photovoltaic applications.

Since 1st August 2008, Joachim works now at the ISC in several projects as a project manager in the field of Si-based thin film and PERC solar cells and is responsible for the optical and electrical characterization, and at present from early 2013 additionally on applied photovoltaics with focus on smart systems and storage technology.
