Ortwin Hess

Leverhulme Chair
Imperial College London


Ortwin Hess is a theoretical physicist in condensed matter quantum optics. He currently holds the Leverhulme Chair in the Blackett Laboratory (Department of Physics) at Imperial College London. He heads a team of researchers working on light-matter interaction in quantum nano-photonics, plasmonics and metamaterials, semiconductor nano-photonics and nano-laser dynamics and is Co-Director of Imperial’s Centre for Plasmonics & Metamaterials. He obtained the PhD degree from the Technical University of Berlin (Germany) in 1993, while spending extended time (1990 – 1992) in Edinburgh (UK). After a post-doc at the University of Marburg (Germany) he obtained his Habilitation in Theoretical Physics at the University of Stuttgart in 1997. He was Visiting Professor at Stanford University (1997/98) and at the Ludwig-Maximilians University of Munich (1999/2000). Before moving to Imperial College in January 2011 he was from 2003 to 2010 Professor of Theoretical Condensed Matter and Optical Physics at the University of Surrey (Guildford, UK).
