Der Gruppenleiter:

Prof. Sven Ingebrandt was born in Alzey, Germany, in 1971. He received the Diplom in Physics in 1998 from the Johannes-Gutenberg University Mainz, Germany. From1998-2001 he was working as doctoral researcher at the Max-Planck-Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, under the supervision of Prof. Wolfgang Knoll. In 2001, Sven Ingebrandt received his Dr. rer. nat. degree in Physical Chemistry from the Johannes-Gutenberg University Mainz, Germany. From 2001-2002, he was working as postdoctoral researcher at the Frontier Research Program, RIKEN, Tokyo, Japan. From 2002-2008 he was then a group leader at the Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH, Germany, in the Institute of Bio- and Nanosystems (IBN), Institute 2: Bioelectronics of Prof. Andreas Offenhäusser. In 2008, he was appointed as a W2 professor of Biomedical Instrumentation at the University of Applied Sciences Kaiserslautern. There he was building up and leading the young and interdisciplinary research group Biomedical Signalling. In January 2018, he moved to the RWTH Aachen University on a W3 chair professorship for Micro- and Nanosystems in the faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology and he is currently the director of the Institute of Materials in Electrical Engineering 1 (IWE 1). Prof. Ingebrandt is also leading the research sub-group Micro-nanosystems and bioelectronics at IWE 1 working at the interface between biotechnology, cell biology, nanotechnology, electronics and microsystem technology. His main interests are NEMs and MEMs design and fabrication for biological, bioelectronics, environmental and industry 4.0 sensing applications with a focus on novel, functional materials, bioelectronic signal recording and interpretation, neuronal implants and system integration of NEMs and MEMs for their various technical applications.

Prof. Ingebrandt authored more than 115 scientific journal publications and many conference proceedings, book chapters and conference presentations with a current h-index of 31 (ISI WoK). ORCID: 0000-0002-0405-2727
