Stefan Seeger invented together with his research group the Supercritical Angle Fluorescence Microscopy-Method and Silicone-Nanofilaments, i.e. Nanostructured coatings, which show e.g. superhydrophobic and superoleophobic properties. Further he developed techniques for the manipulation of biological particles. Stefan Seeger published until today more than 100 scientific articles. In addition, he founded technology companies, e.g. Molecular Machines & Industries, Ltd., today the leading supplier of laseroptic and single cell handling systems for life science research, pathology, biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry.
