Prof. Dr. Kay Niemax is Wilhelm-Ostwald-Fellow at Department of Analytical Chemistry and Reference Materials of the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM) in Berlin. He studied physics at University of Kiel (Germany) and received his Diploma and Ph.D. in physics from the Institute of Experimental Physics at Kiel University in 1970 and 1972, respectively. 1979 he became lecturer and 1984 professor of physics in Kiel. 1979-1980 he was a Visiting Fellow at ­JILA in Boulder (Colorado), a joint institute of NIST and University of Colorado. 1985 he became head of the Department of Elemental Analyses at Institute of Spectrochemistry and Applied Spectroscopy (ISAS) in Dortmund and moved to Stuttgart (Germany) in 1993 where he received the Chair in Physics of the University of Hohenheim. 1997 until his retirement 2010 he was director of ISAS-Institute for Analytical Sciences with departments in Dortmund and Berlin and full-professor at the Faculty of Physics of University of Dortmund.

From 1970 to 1985 his major research interests were plasma, atomic and molecular physics. With his move to Dortmund in 1985 he changed to spectrochemistry and analytical chemistry.

Prof. Niemax has published over 230 papers, presented more than 100 invited talks at conferences, and served in advisory boards of major analytical chemistry journals. In 2000 he received an Honorary Doctorate of the University of Constanta (Romania) and in 2010 the Lester W. Strock Award of the Society of Applied Spectroscopy (USA). He is also Fellow of the Society of Applied Spectroscopy and of the Royal Society of Chemistry (UK).
