Christoph Bräuchle, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU), Munich, Germany, celebrates his 75th birthday on March 12, 2022.

Professor Bräuchle’s research interests include the imaging, spectroscopy, and manipulation of single molecules in the nano- and biosciences, fluorescence live-cell imaging, single-virus tracing, and force spectroscopy, as well as single-molecule dynamics in nanoporous systems.

Christoph Bräuchle studied chemistry and physics at the Technical University of Berlin and the University of Tübingen, both Germany. He received his Ph.D. in physical chemistry from LMU in 1978. After postdoctoral research at IBM Laboratories in San Jose, CA, USA, he completed his habilitation at LMU in 1982. There, he was appointed Assistant Professor in 1984, and Professor for Physical Chemistry in 1988.

Among other honors, Bräuchle has been awarded the Philip Morris Research Award “New Ways in Material Science” in 1993, the Karl Heinz Beckurts Prize by the Karl Heinz Beckurts Foundation in 2002, and the Walther Nernst Medal by the Deutsche Bunsen-Gesellschaft für physikalische Chemie e.V. (DBG, German Bunsen Society for Physical Chemistry) in 2015. He is a Member of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and the Academia Europaea.
