Jörg Schilling obtained his physics diploma from the Martin-Luther-University of Halle, Germany, in 1999. During this time he worked in the field of reflectometry with X-rays on thin layers. Subsequently, he moved to the Max-Planck-Institute of Microstructure Physics in Halle where he obtained a PhD in 2002 investigating the optical properties of 2D- and 3D-photonic crystals based on macroporrous silicon. From 2002 to 2005 he worked as Postdoc at the California Institute of Technology in the group of Prof. Scherer in Pasadena, USA.

In December 2005 he obtained a Royal Society University Research Fellowship and since then he worked at the Centre for Nanostructured Media at the Queen's University Belfast, UK, to September 2009.

In his present fields of research he can use his experimental experiences f. e. in photolithography, electrochemical and wet etching, thermal and electron beam evaporation, focused ion beam milling, X-ray reflection and diffraction, photoluminnescence spectroscopy and FTIR-reflection and transmission.

Since October 2009, he heads the research group “Silicon-to-Light”.
