was born in Kosmeden, Germany, and studied chemistry at the University of Marurg/Lahn, gaining his Ph.D. in 1965 for work on “Energy Transfer in Monolayer Systems”. Since 1971 he has been at the Max-Planck-Institut für Biophysikalische Chemie in Göttingen, while also lecturing at the University of Marburg. His areas of interest include the physical chemistry of interfaces, the organization of complex monolayers and the photochemistry of organized systems.

Scheibe agregates (J-aggregates), highly ordered systems of strongly interacting chromophores (e.g. see figure), are characterized by a strong and narrow absorption band shifted to lower energy with respect to the band of the monomer, and a narrow resonance emission band with a very small Stokes shift. The formation of such aggregates, their organization and reorganization, their structure and their optical and photophysical properties are reviewed.
