Bio-brief:
Helmut Schift studied electrical engineering at the University of Karlsruhe (now Karlsruhe Institut of Technology KIT), Germany, and at the ENSPS in Strasbourg, then he performed his Ph.D. studies at the Institute of Microtechnology Mainz, Germany. He received his diploma in 1991, and Ph.D. (Dr.-Ing.), both at the University of Karlsruhe in 1994. He specialized in micro-optics, high aspect ratio lithography and replication (LiGA technology). After his graduation in 1994, he joined the Paul Scherrer Institute. He is head of the Advanced Nanomanufacturing Group in the Laboratory of Nano and Quantum Technologies. As one of the pioneers in nanoimprint lithography (NIL), a next generation manufacturing technique for a range of future applications with down to sub-20 nm resolution, he has developed enabling techniques for the patterning of functional surfaces with topological and chemical surface contrast, and used these processes in different research and application fields. He is a co-author of 150 scientific papers, including reviews and book chapters, and editor of the NaPa Library of Processes (https://www.psi.ch/en/lnq/people/helmut-schift). H. Schift is member of the steering board of the Int. Conference on Nanoprint and Nanoimprint Technology (NNT). Since 2019, H. Schift is Consultant on Research Integrity (30%) at PSI. For this purpose, in 2021, he completed MAS studies of Applied Ethics at the University of Z체rich.
