Day1, July 5: 13:30 Session C: Nanoscience/Medtech/Biotech - developments at the interface

Dr. Henriette Maaß was born in 1987 in Hanau, Germany. From 2007 till 2013 she studied Physics at the University of Würzburg where she received her PhD in 2017. Her main research focus was the investigation of semiconducting and metallic thin films by photoelectron spectroscopy.

From 2017 till 2019 she worked at Singulus Technologies AG on implementing and optimizing thin-film deposition processes for semiconductor devices.

In 2019 she started the spin-off project NanoStruct resulting in the foundation of NanoStruct GmbH in February 2021 where Henriette Maaß is founder & CEO.


She has won several prices including the “Wilhelm-Conrad-Röntgen-Wissenschaftspreis” in 2017 and the Northern Bavarian Businessplan Contest in 2021.


Her current focus with NanoStruct lies on the development of plasmonic sensors that can be applied in optical spectroscopy.
