Dieter Gerlich is a world-renowned scientist in the field of physics and chemistry of trapped ions and ion-molecule reactions (http://www.tu-chemnitz.de/physik/ION/ ). He received his Diploma in Physics as well as his Ph.D. from the Albert Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg (C. Schlier). After a Post-Doctoral appointment at the University of California at Berkely, USA (Y. T. Lee), and Habilitation in Freiburg, he accepted a professor position at the TUC in 1993. Since his retirement in 2009, he is actively engaged in several laboratories, especially in Prague, Basel, and Köln. In 2012 he was awarded the SASP Erwin Schrödinger Gold Medal 2012 for his outstanding contributions to ion chemistry and astrophysics. An important foundation for his scientific achievements has been the development of innovative instruments using radiofrequency ion guides and cryogenic ion traps.
There will be a small reception with wine and cheese after the seminar (sponsored by Bruker Daltonics and Thermo Fisher Scientific).
