Professor Stephan Rauschenbach, Tutorial Fellow in Physical Chemistry
Stephan is a Tutorial Fellow in Physical Chemistry at Wadham College and a Professor in the Department of Chemistry.
His research interests lie in preparative mass spectrometry, a method of handling even the largest of molecules to make them accessible at the individual molecule level. This is useful as a tool for atomically resolved single molecule imaging as well as for the fabrication of functional molecular coatings mimicking biological concepts.
Having studied physics in Augsburg, Zurich and Munich, after a short stay in industry in Japan, Stephan started his research in preparative mass spectrometry for surface science at the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart (Germany), working on his PhD. After completing his dissertation at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) he became group leader at the Max Planck Institute in Stuttgart and has been teaching in the Department of Physics at the University of Konstanz.
