Keynote Speaker
Dr. Adriana Szeghalmi
Dr. Adriana Szeghalmi
Group Leader ALD, Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering IOF, Germany

Adriana Szeghalmi works interdisciplinary in the development of atomic layer deposition coatings for optical applications at the Friedrich Schiller University and Fraunhofer Institute of Applied Optics and Precision Engineering - IOF in Jena. She studied Chemistry and Physics in Cluj-Napoca, Romania and did her PhD in Raman and surface enhanced Raman scattering spectroscopy in W├╝rzburg, Germany. As a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Manitoba in Canada, she conducted research in the microspectroscopy of animal and plant tissues by means of infrared spectroscopy and SERS. 2007, she returned to Germany to work in a new research field working in atomic layer deposition (ALD) at the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics in Halle (Saale). Since 2010, she has been leading an Emmy Noether Research Group at the university and since 2015, she has been the head of an Attract Group at the Fraunhofer IOF in Jena. Her research focus is on the material development, refractive and diffractive functional coatings by means of ALD towards micro-nano structured or strongly curved optics. She has co-authored more than 70 articles in peer-reviewed journals and 2 book chapters with an impact factor h-31.
