Brief Curriculum Vitae

Jochen Mannhart is a director at the Max Planck Institute of Solid State Research in Stuttgart, Germany, leading the department "Solid State Quantum Electronics".

He studied Physics at the University of Tübingen (Germany), receiving his diploma in 1986 and his PhD in 1987. Subsequently, he worked as a visiting scientist at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights and as a Research Staff Member and Manager at the IBM Zurich Research Laboratory in Rüschlikon, Switzerland. From 1996 to 2011, he was a chaired professor at the Center for Electronic Correlations and Magnetism at the University of Augsburg.

His research interests focus on the properties of interfaces in complex electronic materials. The efforts of the various teams he was working in resulted in the discovery and development of bicrystal Josephson junctions and SQUIDs, the enhancement of critical currents of high-Tc superconductors by grain alignment, which is the basis for the modern high-Tc superconducting cables, the first imaging of individual atoms with subatomic resolution, and the fabrication of the first all-oxide FETs.

Jochen Mannhart has received numerous awards for his research, including the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz-Preis of the German Science Foundation and the Europhysics Prize 2014.
