After receiving his Diploma in Mineralogy at the University of Cologne, Klaus-Dieter Kreuer did a PhD in the department of Chemistry at the University of Stuttgart. As a fellow of the "Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes" he benefited from a research stay at the California Institute of Technology (group of R. Vaughan) and a Max-Planck award allowed him to join the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as a visiting scientist. Later, Klaus-Dieter Kreuer built an R&D group within a Swiss-German company (Endress & Hauser) before joining the Max-Planck-Institute for Solid State Research, where he assisted J. Maier in building his new department. Since 1990 Klaus-Dieter Kreuer is lecturing (Materials Science) at the University of Stuttgart from which he received his Habilitation degree.
Klaus-Dieter Kreuer’s research is targeting at a deeper understanding of ion (in particular proton) conduction phenomena and the development of ion (proton) conducting materials for electrochemical applications such as fuel cells and batteries.
