Academic Career and Research Areas

Dr. Deschler completed his undergraduate studies in Physics at the University of Bayreuth and the University of St Andrews. He obtained his Dr. rer. nat. from LMU Munich with Prof. Feldmann in the field of organic semiconductor spectroscopy. He then moved to the Optoelectronics Group at the University of Cambridge to work with Prof. Sir Richard Friend, where he made ground-breaking discoveries into the ultrafast photo-physics of metal-halide perovskite semiconductors. Dr. Deschler was awarded independent research funding through a Herchel Smith Postdoctoral Fellowship (2014) and a Winton Advanced Research Fellowship (2016). He joined TUM in May 2019 and leads an Emmy-Noether research group at the WSi.

In his research, Dr. Deschler explores how the structure and composition of materials control properties and dynamics of electronic states on ultrafast timescales. He uses time-resolved techniques with focus on advanced laser spectroscopy to gain a fundamental picture of the underlying physics that enable efficient optoelectronic applications.
