Curiculum Vitae:

Christian Koos is a professor at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Institute of Photonics and Quantum Electronics (IPQ) since 2010. He received the Dipl.-Ing. (M.Tech.) and the Dr.-Ing. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Karlsruhe, in 2002 and 2007, respectively. From 2007 to 2008, he carried out post-doctoral research at the Institute of Photonics and Quantum Electronics, University of Karlsruhe, where he pioneered nanophotonic silicon-organic hybrid (SOH) devices. From 2008 to 2010, he was leading the technology radars "Nanotools and Nanometrology" and “Metrology” within the Corporate Research and Technology department of Carl Zeiss AG, Germany.
