Following postdoctoral appointments at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (USA), the Hahn-Meitner Institute Berlin (1992), and Syracuse University, he joined the faculty of the Notre Dame Radiation Laboratory in 1995.  He was promoted a year later from assistant to associate professional specialist, and remained affiliated to Notre Dame until 2004.  Since 2004, he has been a Full Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Pharmacy at the Friedrich-Alexander University in Erlangen. In his current position, Dirk is one of the world’s leading scientists in the field of charge transfer and nanocarbons. In particular, he is well-known for his outstanding contributions to the areas of charge-separation in donor-acceptor materials and the construction of nanostructured thin films for solar energy conversion. His group is involved in the designing, devising, synthesizing, and testing of novel nanometer scale structures as integrative components for photoelectrochemical devices. The charge transfer behavior of nanocarbon materials is also studied, in solution, as transparent films or at electrode surfaces.
