Ivan K. Schuller
Professor Ivan K. Schuller is a Distinguished Professor of Physics at the University of California, San Diego. Prior to his appointment at San Diego, Schuller served as a Senior Physicist and Group Leader at the Argonne National Laboratory. Schuller, a member of the Chilean, Spanish, Colombian and Belgian Academies has won major science and TV prizes including the American Physical Society (Wheatley, Adler), Materials Research Society (Medal, Somiya), Department of Energy (Lawrence), Department of Defense (Vannevar Bush), European (Humboldt and Lise Meitner) and Regional Emmy. His 550 papers and 20 patents established the field of metallic superlattices key for the start of Spintronics, determined the structure of YBCO high temperature superconductor, and established the phenomenology of many hybrid heterostructures. His recent basic research on the properties of quantum-materials has direct relevance for Neuromorphic Computing and Sensors.
