Professor Thomas Bjørnholm (b. 1960), Director of Nano-Science Center
at the University of Copenhagen since 2001, obtained his Ph.D. in materials
chemistry in 1990. In 1992 he became affiliated with the Chemistry Department
at the University of Copenhagen as Associate Professor, in 2000 as Research
Professor and in 2005 as full Professor. In 1997 he was a visiting professor
at the University of Texas at Austin and since 2003 he has been the chairman
of the Copenhagen Graduate School for Nanoscience and Nanotecnology.
Thomas Bjørnholms main research interests lie within the area of organic
electronics, single molecule science, supramolecular chemistry, bio-nanotechnology,
Langmuir-Blodgett Films, nanochemistry, bionano technology, and synthetic biology.
Recent achievements include the first measurement of the nanoscale dewetting
of extended hydrophobic surfaces in water and the first measurements of a single
pi-conjugated organic molecule in a single electron transistor device visiting
a number of distinct redox states. He has published more than 145 papers in
scientific journals and books including several contributions to high impact
journals as Science and Nature, and given more than 170 invited talks at conferences
and research institutions.
Thomas Bjørnholm is elected member of the Royal Danish Academy of Science
and Letters, the Danish Academy of Technical Sciences, the Danish Natural Science
Academy, the Danish Board of Technology, and he has received several research
