Search among the members of the Leopoldina for experts in specific fields or research topics. After entering a name in the "Name" field, click on "Search" to go directly to a member profile. With the input and selection in the fields "City" and „Country", you can limit your search locally or regionally, or target specific sections of the Leopoldina. Alternatively or in combination a full-text search is possible for all member profiles - use the upper input field. The use of operators like AND, NOT or * is permitted in the full-text search. For example, you may search for "genetics" or "*genet*" to get results with "genetic" or "molecular genetics".

Main research interests: STED microscopy and related concepts
Stefan Hell is a physicist. He pioneered breaking the diffraction barrier in a light microscope using conventional lenses. In 2014, he was honoured by the Nobel Prize in Chemistry “for the development of super-resolved fluorescence microscopy” together with Eric Betzig and William E. Moerner.
Pioneered breaking the diffraction barrier in a light microscope using conventional lenses
Invention and development of STED microscopy and related concepts
Discovered and demonstrated on-off switching of (fluorescence) signal as key mechanism for overcoming the diffraction resolution barrier.
