Scientists from Jülich together with colleagues from Aachen and Turin have produced a memristive element made from nanowires that functions in much the same way as a biological nerve cell. The component is able to both save and process information, as well as receive numerous signals in par ... more

Jörg Fitter studied physics at the University of Hamburg. After completing his doctoral studies at FU Berlin, he worked in neutron scattering and molecular biophysics at the Hahn Meitner Institute in Berlin and Jülich Research Center. He completed his habilitation in physical biology at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf and was principal investigator in ICS-5 (Institute of Complex Systems, Molecular Biophysics) at Jülich Research Center. He has been a professor for biophysics at RWTH Aachen since 2012 and is acting director of ICS-5. Since 2011, Jörg Fitter has played an active role as a faculty member in the International Helmholtz Research School of Biophysics and Soft Matter (IHRS Biosoft). His research work focuses on the development of methods for fluorescence-based single-molecule techniques as well as their application.
