ACP principal scientist Torsten Frosch was distinguished with the Bunsen Kirchhoff Award for Analytical Spectroscopy 2016 for his outstanding research in the fields of fiber-enhanced and cavity-enhanced Raman spectroscopy.
Torsten Frosch studied physics with specialization in optics and was honored for his doctorate in physical chemistry at the University of Jena with the Faculty Award chemistry and the PEN Award. After postdoctoral stays at Monash University in Melbourne and at Imperial College in London, he now heads the working group Fiber-optical Sensors at the Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology. Here and at ACP, he deals mainly with the fiber spectroscopy and gas sensing.
The Bunsen Kirchhoff Award recognizes outstanding achievements of established young scientists in the scientific community of analytical spectroscopy. The research prize is annually awarded by the German Working Group for Analytical spectroscopy (DAAS) of the Section Analytical Chemistry of the German Chemical Society e.V. (GDCh). The prize money of 2,500 euros is donated by PerkinElmer.
