Patrick Kluth acts as an Associate Professor and Australian Research Council Future Fellow at the Department of Electronic Materials Engineering at the Australian National University, Australia. He obtained his Ph.D. degree from the Faculty of Physics at the RWTH University Aachen, Germany, in July 2002 with highest honors (summa cum laude). The work was carried out at the Research Center Jülich on the development and study of nanostructuring processes and design and fabrication of nanometric transistor devices. His work was acknowledged with the award of the “Borchert Medal” from the University Aachen in 2003. In January 2003, Patrick joined the Australian National University as a Feodor-Lynen Research Fellow supported by the Humboldt Foundation in Germany. Subsequently, he has been awarded consecutive prestigious fellowships from the Australian Research Council (Australian Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2005, Australian Research Fellowship in 2008, and an ARC Future Fellowship in 2013). His research focuses on materials science, in particular ion beam synthesis and modification of materials studied using synchrotron based analytical techniques, where he is leading a group focussing on small angle X-ray scattering of ion tracks and nanoparticles as well as swift heavy ion modification of semiconductors. He acts as a Member of the User Advisory Committee and the Program Advisory Committee of the SAXS/WAXS beamline at the Australian Synchrotron.
