Nanotechnology at BASF — Precursor Nano-Structures in Crystallization Processes
BASF Advanced Research Initiative at Harvard
Jens Rieger received his PhD in Theoretical Physics at the Universität des Saarlandes (Germany). In 1989, he joined BASF in the Polymer Physics Department where he first worked in the field of polymeric materials as project manager. In 1995, he established a group for the study of particle, scale, and crystal formation processes - with emphasis on gaining information about the molecular mechanisms of these phenomena. Two years later he was appointed additionally head of the X-ray diffraction laboratory (small and wide angle X-ray scattering). Besides laboratory equipment the facilities of high radiation sources outside BASF (synchrotron, neutron reactors) are used. Since 2006 he is internal advisor on exploratory research and nanotechnology. Presently he is heading the BASF Advanced Research Initiative at Harvard together with Dave Weitz and George Whitesides.
Jens Rieger is member of several advisory boards:
- Research Neutron Source Munich (FRM II),
Advisory Board for Industrial and Medical Use of the FRM II
- Network of Excellence: SoftComp (within the 6th European Framework Program),
International Advisory Board
- Member of the 7th KOMITEE “Research with Synchrotron Radiation” (scientific and political advice)
- Journal Advanced Materials (Wiley VCH), International Advisory Board
He is author or co-author of more than 100 scientific publications, contributions to books and patents.
In 2005 Jens Rieger was appointed “Distinguished Guest Professor” at the “Changchun Institute of Applied Chemistry” (CIAC), Chinese Academy of Sciences.
