Biography: Dr. Herbert C. Freyhardt is presently a member of the board (Vorstand) of the Institut fuer Materialphysik of the University of Goettingen and Managing Director of the Zentrum fuer Funktionswerkstoffe gem. GmbH (Center for Applied Materials Research) Goettingen. He is a University professor and teaches materials science, physics of metals and solid state physics.

As a physicist he devotes his research to materials and solid state science, in particular superconductivity and superconducting materials, metastable and amorphous alloys, composite materials, thin film oxides, magnetic materials, bulk and thin-film high-temperature superconductors as well as growth and characterization of metal and semiconducting single crystals.

He co-established in 1990 the Zentrum fuer Funktionswerkstoffe (ZFW) as a public company. The ZFW develops functional materials for technical applications and links fundamental research with industry. On the basis of focussed basic research, pilot process technologies and pilot production installations are developed.

Dr. Freyhardt participates in many national and international projects and has developed a close cooperation with industry. He also serves on the board (Aufsichtsrat) of a German bank and reviews numerous national and international R&D programs. In 1993 he founded the European Conferences of Applied Superconductivity. He has been a Visiting Scientist at Argonne National Laboratory (1972/73), and has conducted research in European countries or abroad in the USA, Japan and China.
