Pathways in Physics: Dr. Mathias Mews - Physicist as Development Engineer
Dr. Mathias Mews studied physics at the Freie Universität Berlin and received his doctorate at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin and the Technical University Berlin. After that and during his PhD work, he conducted research at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin and developed processes for silicon heterojunction solar cells using plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) and physical vapor deposition (PVD) tools.
Dr. Mathias Mews has been working as an engineer at Bosch for about three years, developing process steps and process blocks for microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) such as ultra-sensitive optical, pressure and motion sensors.
Dr. Mathias Mews will talk about his path into physics research, his activities at Bosch as well as why he goes everywhere by bike and still lives in car maniac country Schwaben.

My advice to future physicistsThe most fun and educating part of a job is the beginning, when you are not yet good at it.
Students can ask questions in English or German.
About "Pathways in Physics"
In the online talk series for students of physics, different speakers will talk about their own pathway in physics: why they became physicists, how they recognized what their interests in physics were and how they went about getting positions in research and industry. We invite speakers from the Department of Physics, different research institutions as well as from various industries.
