Viktor Krozer


Viktor Krozer-Goethe University Frankfurt Am Main. Germany

Viktor Krozer Dr.-Ing. degree and Habilitation in electrical engineering at the Technical University Darmstadt in 1991 and in 1998, respectively. In 1991 he became senior scientist at the TU Darmstadt working on high-temperature microwave devices and circuits and submillimeter-wave electronics. From 1996–2002 Dr. Krozer was full professor at the Technical University of Chemnitz, Germany. During 2002-2009 Dr. Krozer was professor at Electromagnetic Systems, DTU Elektro, Technical University of Denmark, and was heading the Microwave Technology Group, focusing on MMIC design for millimetre-wave and THz applications and radar systems. During 2009-2012 Dr. Krozer has been an endowed Oerlikon-Leibniz-Goethe professor for Terahertz Photonics at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany and since 2012 heads the Goethe-Leibniz-Terahertz-Center at the same university. He is also with the Ferdinand-Braun-Institut, Leibniz Institut für Hoechstfrequenztechnik, Berlin, leading the THz components and systems group.

His research areas include terahertz electronics, MMIC design and characterization, nonlinear circuit analysis and design, device modelling, and remote sensing instrumentation as well as imaging systems.



Millimeter-Wave Spectroscopy of Biomedical Tissue and Cells for Life Sciences

The goal of the project is to establish mm-wave and THz spectroscopy as a viable tool for metabolomics and proteomics. One of the advantages of mm-wave and THz spectroscopy is its ability to study dynamical processes in cells and cell membranes. The project will demonstrate the first observation of cell membrane dynamics using novel sensor structures. Mm-wave and THz spectroscopy allows to probe biological cells, tissue and organs in vivo as well as in vitro. THz electronic and photonic technologies are widely available now. On the other hand, sensors and sensor structures are not well established, which limits the sensitivity. Specificity of the sensors is achieved via sensor functionalization. In this project, we will develop mm-wave sensors using both electronic and photonic approaches. We will establish functionalization of the sensors and will perform spectroscopy studies to demonstrate for the first time dynamical changes in cell membranes and cells in liquid solutions. We will also study different liquid mixtures with the aim to develop assays based on the above sensor structures.
