Prof. Joachim Albrecht
Joachim Albrecht is professor for physics and thin film technology at Aalen University since 2008 and is one of the founders of the Research Institute for Innovative Surfaces, FINO, in 2014. He received his PhD from the University of Stuttgart in 2001 and spent several years as senior scientist and group leader at the Max-Planck-Institutes in Stuttgart, Germany. His interests focus on tribology, surface patterning, wetting, superconductivity and magnetic imaging. Using a combination of microstructuring and coating to produce films and surfaces with tailored properties is the main idea behind his work. He authors more than 70 peer-reviewed publications and is reviewer for more than 20 journals.
