N. Dietz obtained BS degrees in Physics and Computer Science from the Technical University Berlin in 1981 and 1984, respectively. In 1988 he obtained his MS in Physics and in 1991 his Dr. ret. nat., both from the Institute of Physics at the Technical University Berlin. He has held industrial positions at BASF Ludwigshafen and Hahn-Meitner-Institute Berlin. 1992, he joined the Department of Materials Science and in 1995 the Department of Physics at North-Carolina State University, Raleigh, focusing on thin film growth of compound semiconductors and real-time optical growth diagnostics. In 2000, he became a member of the faculty in the Department of Physics & Astronomy at Georgia State University. His research interest and expertise includes: growth of novel optoelectronic compound semiconductors, heteroepitaxy of III-V compounds, birefringent chalcopyrite semiconductors, MBE/CBE, OMCVD, high-pressure CVD, process control, real-time optical diagnostics, and the characterization of linear/nonlinear optical materials properties.
