Title: Graphene - electronic structure of a model 2-dimensional solid

Karsten Horn studied physics at the Rheinisch-Westfälische Technische Hochschule Aachen, Germany, and obtained his Ph.D. in vibrational spectroscopy of adsorbates on metals at Queen Mary College, London. He is a staff scientist at the Fritz Haber Institute in Berlin, and his work centers around the investigation of the electronic structure of low dimensional structures, semiconductor interfaces, quasicrystalline materials, and low dimensional structures such as metallic quantum wells and graphene, using photoelectron spectroscopy.
