Holger Dau

Freie Universitaet Berlin, Germany

Holger Dau received his doctoral degree in Kiel, worked in Berkeley and Marburg, and since 2000, he is in Berlin. His group at Freie Univ. Berlin (Dept. of Physics) uses X-ray spectroscopy and complementary methods to investigate catalysis at biological and synthetic metal sites, with focus on water-oxidation in biological photosynthesis and artificial systems for production of solar fuels.
