What's New at Quantachrome?


Dr. Matthias Thommes, Quantachrome’s Director of Applied Science since 2001 has accepted the prestigious position as a Full Professor and Head of the Institute for Separation Science and Technology at the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany. This institute is part of the Chemical and Biological Engineering Department, which offers one of the leading chemical engineering programs in Germany. Founded in 1743, the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg is today one of Germany's top comprehensive research universities with approximately 40,000 students. The University is consistently ranked highly in both national and international rankings including the QS World University Ranking and the Reuters Top 100 World’s Most Innovative Universities ranking.

Under Dr. Thommes’ leadership, Quantachrome’s Science Department was established and achieved over the last decade world-wide recognition in the area of adsorption and porous materials characterization. He worked in close collaboration with various universities and holds positions as visiting professor at the University of Edinburgh, UK and Lorraine University, France. Now, after more than 17 extremely successful years at Quantachrome in Boynton Beach Fl, Dr. Matthias Thommes, wants to pursue a new stage in his career in academia. Quantachrome and Anton Paar very much regret to see Dr. Thommes leave, however we will continue to work in close collaboration with Prof. Thommes after he has resumed his new responsibilities on July 1 2018 at the Friedrich-Alexander University in Erlangen-Nuremberg.
