Ludwig J. Gauckler received his degree in physics at the University of Stuttgart and his Ph.D. in materials science in 1977. As senior scientist at the Max Planck Institute for Metals and Materials Research in Stuttgart he carried out research in the area of high performance structural and functional ceramics. He was research associate at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor in 1977. From 1979 to 1988 he was responsible for the inorganic non-metallic materials development in the central laboratories of Alusuisse-Lonza AG. Since 1988 he is Professor for "Nonmetallic Inorganic Materials" in the Department of Material Science at the ETH-Zurich. He served as head of the Department from 1991-1993. He was guest professor at the Tsinghua University in Beijing in 1993 and at the MIT, Boston in 2001.
Ludwig Gauckler and his co-workers received several national and international awards for their work on colloid chemistry for ceramic processing and high temperature solid oxide fuel cells, among them the Award for Real Advances in Materials from NASTS and the Federation of Materials Societies. He is Fellow of the American Ceramic Society and served as President of the scientific advisory board of the Swiss Academy of Technical Sciences (SATW). He is member of the Academy of Ceramics, and serves on the boards of several high-tech companies and on the editorial boards of the Journal of Electroceramics, Ceramic International and Materials Science and Engineering A.
His research interests include structural ceramics, high Tc-superconductors, computer assisted modelling of thermodynamics and heterogeneous phase equilibria, mixed ionic-electronic conducting oxides and colloidal chemistry for ceramic processing.
Prof. Gauckler published more than 180 scientific papers and holds 15 patents.
