Ehrenfried Zschech is working in the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems (IKTS).

Ehrenfried Zschech is Division Director at Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems in Dresden, which he joined in 2009, and speaker of the Dresden Fraunhofer Cluster Nanoanalysis.
His responsibilities include micro- and nanoanalysis as well as R&D in the field of test systems. Ehrenfried Zschech holds honorary professorships for nanomaterials at the Brandenburg University of Technology in Cottbus-Senftenberg and for nanoanalysis at the Dresden University of Technology, where he is acting as Scientific Coordinator of the Dresden Center for Nanoanalysis.

He received his diploma degree in solid-state physics and his Dr. rer. nat. degree from Dresden University of Technology.
After having spent four years as a project leader in the field of metal physics and reliability of microelectronics interconnects at Research Institute of Nonferrous Metals in Freiberg, he was appointed as a university teacher for ceramic materials at Freiberg University of Technology.

In 1992, he joined the development department at Airbus in Bremen. There he managed the metal physics group and worked on laser-joining metallurgy of light metals.
From 1997 to 2009, Ehrenfried Zschech managed the Materials Analysis Department and the Center for Complex Analysis at AMD in Dresden. In this position, he was responsible for the analytical support for process control and technology development, as well as physical failure analysis.
His current research interests are in the areas nanomaterials and nanoanalysis, with the focus on thin film technology and nanotechnology.

He has published three books and more than 170 papers in scientific journals in the areas of solid-state physics and materials science. Ehrenfried Zschech is acting as Past President of the Federation of European Materials Societies (FEMS), and he is member of the Managing Board of the European Alliance for Materials (A4M) and member of the Steering Committee of The European Platform on Advanced Materials and Technologies (EUMAT). Ehrenfried Zschech is Head of the Scientific Advisory Board of the European Society of Thin Films (EFDS).

Professor Dr. Zschech has been a member of the CEI-Europe faculty since 2009.
