Hartmut Fuess, Darmstadt University of Technology, Germany
Title: In-situ investigation of functional materials by synchrotron and neutron scattering

Hartmut Fuess studied chemistry and physics at the Universities of Darmstadt (Germany) and Grenoble (France). He was a researcher at the Institute Laue-Langevin (ILL) in Grenoble and at Harwell (GB). In 1975 he was appointed Professor for Crystallography at the University of Frankfurt and 1989 Professor for Materials Science at Darmstadt University. He was responsible for the construction and running of diffractometers at several national and international institutions both for neutron and synchrotron radiation. He served as president of the European Crystallographic Association and chaired numerous committees in the field of neutron and synchrotron sciences.
