Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Knoll
Wolfgang Knoll was appointed director and scientific member of the MPI-P in 1993. He headed the department of material science until 2008. His main research interests included aspects of the structure/ order - property/ function relationships of polymeric/ organic systems, in particular, in thin films and at functionalized surfaces. Strong emphasis was put on optical techniques to elucidate the structural and functional properties of supramolecular assemblies and nano-materials.
Wolfgang Knoll moved to the Austrian Institute of Technology as managing director in 2008.
