Leibniz Prizewinners 2004


Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dierk Raabe (38), Materials Science, Max Planck Institute for Iron Research, Dsseldorf (1.55 million euros)
At an early age Dierk Raabe already had a decisive influence on modern materials science. His work deals with the relationship between the microstructure and the properties of metallic materials. His basic research is positioned at the borders between materials science, physics and mathematics and is of great technical relevance to industrial production processes and other applications. His particular scientific excellence is demonstrated by the fact that the development of simulation methods based on material physical properties which he initiated has now matured into the new discipline of "Computational Materials Science" and is developing rapidly all around the world. His latest work on the mechanics of interfaces and surfaces is of outstanding significance to the new field of nanomaterials.

Dierk Raabe studied metallurgy and metal physics at Aachen. After gaining his doctorate and habilitation, he went to Carnegie Mellon University as a Visiting Scientist in 1997, from where he was appointed as a Scientific Member and Director of the Max Planck Institute for Iron Research (Max-Planck-Institut fr Eisenforschung) in Dsseldorf in 1999.

Prof. Dr. Konrad Samwer (51), Solid State Physics, University of Gttingen (1.55 million euros)
Konrad Samwer stands out through the range of work which he performs in the field of solid state physics. His scientific activities focus on high-temperature superconductivity, on the so-called Kondo effect, on disorder phenomena and on magnetism. All his works contain contributions with distinctly materials science oriented aspects. His works on the physics of glass merit particular mention. The discovery of colossal magnetic resistance in manganate layer structures was groundbreaking and opened up a new international research field. The original work from
