Short CV

Gerhard Abstreiter was born in Allershausen, Bavaria. He graduated from Technische Universität München (TUM) in physics in 1973 and received his PhD in 1975 working on cyclotron resonance in Si inversion layers. From 1975 until 1979 he was postdoc and staff scientist at Max Planck Institut für Festkörperforschung in Stuttgart and Grenoble. He returned to TUM Physics Department as group leader in 1979 and became full professor and director of the newly founded Walter Schottky Institut in 1987. Abstreiter has held visiting professorships at University of Innsbruck, at UCSB, at Columbia University and at University of Tokyo since then. He is author or co-author of more than 550 publications which have been cited more than 13000 times. Among the various awards and honours which he received are the Walter Schottky Prize (DPG), the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize (DFG), the Max Born Prize and Medal (DPG and IOP) and the von Schelling Prize (Bavarian Academy of Sciences). He became Fellow of the American Physical Society in1992 and was elected as member of the Bavarian Academy of Science in 2007 and as member of acatech in 2009. Since 2010 Abstreiter is Carl von Linde Senior Fellow of the TUM Institute for Advanced Study.
