Carsten Forthmann

Carsten Forthmann studied Physics at the LMU Munich and graduated in 2008. During his Diploma and PhD thesis he worked in the field of super-resolution fluorescence microscopy and participated on the development on DNA origami based nanoscopic resolution rulers. After finishing his thesis in 2013 he worked as a scientist at the PTB Braunschweig for one year. In 2014 he founded a company (GATTAquant GmbH) which commercializes DNA origami based standards for any type of fluorescence microscope but also for TEM and AFM.
