Director - Herbert Gleiter Institute of Nanoscience
By the end of the 70’s he and his research group opened the way to a new kind of materials, called today nano-crystalline materials. In 2019 more than 100 000 publications in this field were retrieved by the Web of Science. In recent years, Herbert Gleiter expanded this field of Materials Science by developing nanostructured non-crystalline materials that are called today nano-glasses. It is the attractive perspective of these nano-glasses that they have the potential to open the way to a world of new technologies due to their new properties. The new properties of nano-glasses result from their novel atomic structures and/or their novel chemical compositions. Due to these contributions, Professor Herbert Gleiter is considered today to be one of the scientists who initiated and pioneered the field of nanomaterials. Herbert Gleiter received in 1966 his Ph.D. in Physics at the University of Stuttgart. Between 1966 and 1971 he joined Harvard University, MIT and Bell Laboratories as a Post Doctoral Fellow or Visiting Scientist, In 1971 he was appointed to the Professorship in Materials Science at Bochum University. In 1973 he was offered and accepted a position as a Professor and of the Director of the Institute of Materials Science of the University of Saarbuecken, Germany. In 1987 he became the Founding Director of the Institute of New Materials (INM) at Saarbruecken which is today the Leibnitz Institute of New Materials. In 1994 he accepted the position of the President of the Research Center of Karlsruhe (FZK), one of Germany’s National Laboratories. In this function, he founded - in 1998 - the Institute of Nanotechnology (INT) of the Research Center Karlsruhe which became later one partner of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). Since 2012 he is also the Director of the “Herbert Gleiter Institute of Nanoscience” at the Nanjing University of Science and Technology. Very recently, the Chinese Academy of Sciences founded in Shenyang the Herbert Gleiter National Laboratory (HGIL). This new laboratory will focus in theory and experiment on new developments in the area of nanoscience including biological systems e.g. by recruiting top scientists and engineers worldwide During his career he received more than forty prizes and awards among them are the Leibniz Prize and the Max Planck Prize which are considered to be the highest science awards in Germany, the Helmholtz Medal, the Cothenius Medal, which is the highest award of the German National Academy of Sciences.
