In 1999 Prof. Dr. Ir. G. (Gertjan) Koster did his PhD on “Artificial layered complex oxides by pulsed laser deposition“. In that
same year, he moved to the US to join the Kapitulnik-Geballe-Beasley (KGB) group at the Geballe Laboratory for Advanced
Materials, Stanford University. In 2007, he joined the Inorganic Materials Science group, MESA+ institute for nanotechnology,
University of Twente, where since July 2014 he has been associate professor (adjunct hoogleraar). His research focuses on 
the structure-property relation of atomically engineered complex (nano)materials, especially thin film ceramic oxides. For the
thin film synthesis, he developed the first time-resolved RHEED-system, operating at high pressures up to 100 Pa during pulsed
laser deposition. Current research includes the growth and study of artificial materials, the physics of reduced scale (nanoscale)
materials, metal-insulator transitions and in situ spectroscopic characterization.
