Curriculum Vitae (CV)

Klaus Ensslin has been Professor of Solid-State Physics at ETH Zurich since October 1995.

Klaus Ensslin studied physics at the University of Munich and at ETH Zurich. After completing his doctoral dissertation at the Max Planck Institute in Stuttgart, he was a postdoc at the University of California in Santa Barbara, USA. From April 1991 until September 1995 he worked at the University of Munich. His habilitation thesis was awarded a prize from the University of Munich. In 1995 he received the Gerhard Hess prize of the German Science Foundation promoting outstanding young researchers. In 2020 her received the Edison Volta Prize of the European Physical Society.

The primary research interest of Klaus Ensslin lies in the physics of mesoscopic systems. The electronic properties of novel semiconductor nanostructures are investigated using material control down to the atomic scale. One important goal is the ever increasing control and improved understanding of the quantum properties of electrons in nanostructures.
