TU Darmstadt, Germany

Andreas Klein is professor in the surface science division of the department of materials and geosciences at Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany. He has an education in physics and specialized in the materials science of semiconductor interfaces. During his career he has worked on layered chalcogenide semiconductors and thin film solar cells. His current emphasis is on oxide electroceramics, particularly transparent conductive oxides and dielectric and ferroelectric perovskites, where he studies the electronic properties of interfaces using photoelectron spectroscopy with in-situ sample preparation of thin films, mainly by magnetron sputtering. Of special interest is how defects affect interface properties. He has authored more than 200 publications in scientific journals and a number of feature articles and book chapters.
