Barbara Stadlober studied experimental physics at the Karl-Franzens University Graz. During her diploma thesis on "Physical Properties of the Superconducting Bi-Sr-Ca-Cu-O System" she also worked in a project of the Superconductivity Focus of the FFF.
From 1992-1996 she was a member of the scientific staff of the Walther-Meissner Institute for Low Temperature Physics in Garching, Germany and wrote her PhD thesis about "Electronic Raman-Scattering on High-Temperature-Superconductors". She attended numerous international conferences, had several working visits of scientific partners in Europe and the U.S. and has published about 20 papers in refereed journals. Apart from pure research she worked on a project of the FORSUPRA focus of the Bavarian State on Laser Structuring of Superconducting Devices based on High-Tc-Superconductors and supervised diploma works, exercises and courses in Solid State Physics.
After having received her PhD at the Technical University of Munich she was a member of the R&D-Staff of Siemens Halbleiter AG /Infineon Technologies AG in Villach. There she was responsible for the development of processes, structures and methods of reliability studies on electronic devices and for failure analysis.
Since March 2002 she has been working as a research engineer at the Institute of Nanostructured Materials and Photonics, JOANNEUM RESEARCH, and manages the division "Synthesis of Nanostructured Organic Systems". Currently her main interest is in the design, processing and integration of micro- and nanoscaled active and passive electronic devices based on organic materials ('plastic electronics'). In this context special attention is addressed to the evaluation of magnetic, optical and electrical functionalization of organic substances.
