13 A retrospect of the subject of the book
Manfred Fiebig received his doctorate from the University of Dortmund, Germany, in 1996. From 1997 to 1999, he was a JST Research Fellow at the University of Tokyo, Japan. He then headed a Junior Research Group at the University of Dortmund until his habilitation in 2001. From 2002 to 2006, he worked as a DFG Heisenberg Fellow at the Max Born Institute in Berlin. In 2006, he was appointed Professor of Experimental Solid-State Physics at the University of Bonn, Germany; a position he held until 2011. Since 2011, Manfred Fiebig has been Professor for Multifunctional Ferroic Materials in the Department of Materials at ETH Zurich where he heads a group of people uniting the cultural diversity of, at present, 15 nations. His honours include an ERC Advanced Investigator Grant, APS Fellowship, and election as corresponding member in the Academy of Sciences and Literature, Mainz. Most recently, Manfred Fiebig was awarded with the APS Frank Isakson Prize and the Stern-Gerlach Medal of the German Physical Society, their highest distinction in Experimental Physics.
