Leifer, Klaus, Professor in Experimental Physics at
Ångström Laboratory, Uppsala University, Sweden.
Professor Leifer has studied physics at the RWTH Aachen
University. In his thesis at the Swiss Federal Institute of
Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), he focussed on materials analysis
and in particular, electron microscopy techniques. During his work
as a researcher at EPFL, he work on metallic multilayers,
semiconductor nanostructures as well as on beam induced deposition
techniques. At Uppsala University, Professor Leifer develops and
refines advanced electron microscopy and nanostructuring techniques
to understand and create materials which obtain their functionality
on the micron down to the atomic scale.
Professor Leifer has been a member of the CEI-Europe faculty
Thin Film Deposition at the Nanoscale - Mechanisms and
