Professor Herbert Gleiter receives 2019 International Association of Advanced Materials Award
Professor Herbert Gleiter, HKIAS Senior Fellow, was honored with the 2019 International Association of Advanced Materials Award (IAMM Award). The award recognizes the achievements of Professor Gleiter on the design and development of advanced materials. Professor Gleiter will deliver an award lecture at the assembly of Advanced Materials Congress.
Professor Gleiter is the Founding Director of the "Herbert Gleiter Institute of Nanoscience" at Nanjing University of Science and Technology and the Distinguished Senior Professor and Academician at the Institute für Nanotechnology at KIT Karlsruhe in Germany. As the leading scientist in the nanostructured materials, he initiated the development of new class of noncrystalline solids, the so-called nano-glasses. The present work of Professor Gleiter focuses on the application of nanotechnology to probe limits of Quantum Physics in systems of macroscopic size.
Professor Gleiter has received more than 40 prizes / awards throughout his career, including the Blaise Pascal Medal of the European Academy of Sciences and the Cothenius Medal, the highest award of the German National Academy. He is a Member of 10 Academies of Science and/or Engineering, including the US National Academy of Engineering (2004), the European Academy of Sciences (2009), the European Academy of Sciences and Arts (2014) as well as the Academia Europaea and the EU Academy of Sciences (2014). Six universities in Europe and abroad awarded him honorary doctorates.
International Association of Advanced Materials acknowledges the important research contributions in the field of Advanced Materials Science, Engineering & Technology. Advanced Materials Awards recognize long-standing involvement and far-reaching research contribution across the world during the fifteen years preceding from the year of the award.
