About Prof. Dr. Emil List-Kratochvil

Prof. Dr. Emil List-Kratochvil joined Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin in 2015 as Professor for Hybrid Devices at the Departments of Physics and Chemistry. He is also a member of the Integrative Research Institute for the Sciences (IRIS Adlershof).

He is an expert in the field of (printed) semiconductor devices and structure to property relations in organic semiconductors. As Head of the Hybrid Devices group, he is working on electronic and optoelectronic hybrid components (based on hybrid material systems and organic or hybrid semiconductors), additive resource-efficient deposition techniques (inkjet printing) and in-situ nanostructuring and synthesis methods.

By combining novel electroactive materials with appropriate structuring and processing methods, novel principles and applications in the field of sensor devices, photovoltaics and optoelectronic devices are explored and developed. Based on his many years of experience in working in joint R&D projects with partners from academia, startup companies and industry, the Hybrid Devices group will not only work on basic research projects but will also undertake an effort to transfer findings from basic science to applications.

Short CV

Emil List-Kratochvil graduated from the Napier University Edinburgh with a first class BSc (Hons) in Applied Physics in 1996, followed by a first class Master Degree in 1998 and a first class degree of a Doctor Technicae in 2000, both from Graz University of Technology (TU Graz).

He received his Habilitation (Venia Docendi) in Solid State Physics in 2003 at TU Graz. At that time, he was a Christian-Doppler-Society funded Research Associate (2000-2007), directing a laboratory for “Advanced Functional Materials” focusing on an applied research agenda in collaboration with Industry. 2005-2012 he was the scientific spokesperson of the Austrian NANO Initiative Cluster "Integrated Organic Sensor and Optoelectronic Technologies“. 

In 2004 he was appointed Associate Professor in Solid State Physics at TU Graz. In 2004 Professor List-Kratochvil was awarded the Fritz Kohlrauschpreis (ÖPG) and the Basic Research Nanotechnology Award (Province of Styria).

In 2006 he got the offer to found the NanoTecCenter Weiz Forschungsgesellschaft mbH, which he directed as Scientific Managing Director until 2015, in parallel to his appointment at TU Graz.

In 2015 he joined Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin as full professor (W3) at the Departments of Physics and Chemistry as well as a member of the Integrative Research Institute for the Sciences (IRIS Adlershof).

In August 2018 he also accepted the offer of Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin to found and lead a Joint Laboratory as well as Joint Helmholtz Research Group on “Generative Manufacturing Processes for Hybrid Devices”.
