Doc. Ing. Martin WEITER, Ph.D.

Brno University of Technology, Brno, Czech Republic, EU

Specialization: Organic electronics and photonics, printed electronics, advanced materials and biomaterials

Position: Head of Research, Materials Research Centre, Brno University of Technology, Brno, Czech Republic, EU; Vice-dean for international relations

Scientific work:
In his scientific work he focuses on the preparation and characterization of organic semiconductor materials with properties suitable for electronic and optoelectronic applications, electron phenomena in organic semiconductors, optical and electrical properties of organic semiconductors (in particular transport and photogeneration of charge carriers) and applications of advanced organic and biological materials in optical, electronic and sensor devices.

At the NANOCON 2013 conference Martin Weiter will present a key-note lecture at the Session B - Industrial
and Environmental Applications of Nanomaterials.

He received his Diploma in 1994 from the Brno University of Technology (BUT), Faculty of Electrotechnics (CZ) and his PhD. degree in Material Engineering at the same university. (Title of his dissertation work: Study of electron localised states by photoconductive and luminescence methods in organic semiconductors). From 1998 he works at the BUT, Faculty of Chemistry, Institute of Physical and Applied Chemistry. In 2002 stay as postdoc at Phillips University Marburg, Germany. Since 2006 he is the Vice Dean for External Relations, since 2010 Head of Research at recently established Materials Research Centre BUT. In 2003 he received the Rector’s award for excellence in teaching and scientific work.
