Dr. Jerry Woodall is a National Medal of Technology Laureate and a Distinguished Professor of ECE at UC Davis. Dr. Woodall earned a BS in Metallurgy from MIT and a Ph.D in EE from Cornell University. The first part of his career was spent at the IBM Research Division, where he rose to the rank of IBM Fellow, IBM’s highest technical honor and position. While at IBM he invented and developed most of the currently important commercial high-speed electronic and photonic devices that depend on heterojunctions, notably including the first super bright red LEDs and foundation of all current LEDs. He also invented and developed the current embodiments of both the heterojunction bipolar transistor (HBT) and the pseudomorphic high electron mobility transistor (P-HEMT) found in all of the current 7 billion PDAs, e.g. i-phones, on the planet. This has enabled the current annual $35+billion annual market for compound semiconductor materials and devices. The scientific impact of his work has led to three Nobel Prizes in physics: the 1998 prize awarded to Stormer and Tsui "for their discovery of a new form of quantum fluid with fractionally charged excitations"; half the 2000 prize awarded to Kroemer, and Alferov "for developing semiconductor heterostructures used in high-speed- and optoelectronics"; and the 2014 prize awarded to Amano, Nakamura, and Kajita "for the invention of efficient blue light-emitting diodes which has enabled bright and energysaving white light sources" He is a co-founder of LightSpin Technologies Inc., a high performance photo detector company, and Compound Photonics, LLC, a high performance optical projector engine company, and more recently Hydrogallum, a company that is developing and licensing his patented technology of using aluminum plus water to make low cost high purity alumina and high purity hydrogen. His university research is currently focused on three areas: large scale energy storage to enable global scale power-to-energy storage of solar and wind power; very-high-efficiency, low cost photovoltaic devices; and ultra-fast transistor materials and devices. He has 434 journal publications and 95 U.S. patents. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and is a Fellow of the NAI, AAAS, APS, IEEE, ECS, and AVS. IBM corporate recognition includes his election as IBM Fellow in 1985, and an $80,000 IBM Corporate Award in 1992 for the invention of the GaAlAs/GaAs heterojunction.Other recognition includes the 1980 Electronics Division Award of the Electrochemical Society (ECS), the 1984 IEEE Jack A. Morton Award, the 1985 EC
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. He was honored by the award of seven Honorary Doctor Degrees and several Honorary Professorships. He is an elected member of twelve National Academies of Science and/or Engineering in Europe and world-wide e.g. of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the US National Academy of Engineering, the US National Academy of Inventors, the European Academy of Arts and Scinces, the Academia Europaea, the Indian National Academy of Sciences and the Indian National Academy of Engineering.
