Specialization: Semiconductor Physics

GüntherBauer is a professor for Semiconductor Physicsat the University of Linz, Austria, since 1990. He hasgot his PhD at the University of Vienna, his habilitation in physics at the  Rheinisch-Westfälische Technische Hochschule Aachen, Germany, was then associate professor at the University of Ulm, moved to the Montanuniversität Leoben, Austria, as full professor and is since 1990 full professor in the Physics Department of the University of Linz, Austria. He has held visiting appointments at Oxford University and was a visiting professor at Brown University, Providence USA, and at Charles University, Prague.

Main research interestsin semiconductor physics were hot carrier transport, magnetotransport and magnetooptics, molecular beam epitaxial growth of semiconductor nanostructures and at present structural and optical characterization of semiconductor hetero-and nanostructures.


He is a fellow of the American Physical Society and a member of the Austrian Academy of Sciences.
