Material Science & Technology
Power devices & high-voltage ICs, sensors in Europe
DR. PARK, Jong mun
ams AG
Dr. Jong Mun Park is a “President of Korean Scientist Association of Austria” and “Chair of KIAT K-TAG Europe”, and served as a “2015/2016/2017 EU Eurostars2 IEP (Independent Evaluation Panel) member”. He is a Principal Engineer in the R&D Department of ams AG since 2003. Jong Mun received his Ph.D. from Vienna University of Technology in 2004. From 1988-2001 he worked at the Power Semiconductor Group, KERI, where he had been involved in many national projects for developing high-voltage (HV) and power semiconductor devices. Dr. Park holds over 25 national/international patents and co-authored over 120 publications in technical journals and a book. In 2009-2011 he was in the IRPS Technical Committee and co-chair in the HV/RF session. Dr. Park was a member of ESSDERC2015 technical committee. He was also involved as work-package/task leader in several European projects like MODERN and SUPERTHEME. From 2006-2009 he was a leader of TCAD/Device engineering team within ams/IBM joint project for developing high-voltage IC technology, where he developed the industry best HV p-channel LDMOS transistors. His interests include device engineering/optimization/ TCAD works for HV CMOS, optics and CMOS integration, hot-carrier reliability, HV CMOS integration, industry & medical sensors, optics & photodiode integration, 3D sensor integration.
Photochemical Enzyme Models for Solar Energy Utilization, Artificial Photosynthesis and bottom-up Synthetic Biology
PROF. KNöR, Günther
Johannes Kepler University Linz (JKU)
Günther Knör is full professor of Inorganic Chemistry and director of the Photochemistry Center at Johannes Kepler University Linz (JKU) in Austria. His research topics are covering various transdisciplinary aspects of coordination chemistry, excited state reactivity and catalysis including the development of smart bio-inspired processes and functional materials for artificial photosynthesis, green synthetic chemistry and enzyme-like substrate conversion applied in the fields of solar energy utilization and life sciences.
Non-fullerene acceptor – a new material class for highly efficient organic solar cells?
PROF. SCHARBER, Markus c
Johannes Kepler University Linz
Markus Scharber is currently Associate Professor at the Johannes Kepler University Linz, Austria. He studied physics at the Johannes Kepler University Linz and at the Napier University, Edinburgh, Scotland. In 2002 he received a PhD from the Linz Institute for Organic Solar Cells. From 2002 until early 2012 he was working at Konarka Technologies Inc. heading among other responsibilities the Material and Device Development Group. His research interests lie in the area of fundamental processes in novel semiconductor materials focusing on applications for energy harvesting and detection.
