Jörg F. Löffler has been on the faculty of the ETH Zurich since July 2003; first, as a tenure-track Assistant Professor and since 2007 as a Full Professor. He chairs the Laboratory of Metal Physics and Technology, which currently has 25 employees.
Born in Germany in 1969, Prof. Löffler studied physics and materials science at Saarland University, Germany, and carried out his diploma thesis work at the Institute of New Materials, Saarbrücken. After completing his physics diploma in 1994 he transferred to the Paul Scherrer Institute and the ETH Zurich, where he earned his doctorate in the magnetism of nanostructured materials and neutron scattering (1997). After a short stay as a postdoctoral researcher at the Paul Scherrer Institute, he took up a post at the California Institute of Technology as an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow, where he worked with Prof. William L. Johnson in the area of bulk metallic glasses. In 2001 he was appointed tenure-track Assistant Professor at the University of California, Davis, where he stayed until his appointment to the ETH Zurich in 2003.
The principal areas of Prof. Löffler’s research are the synthesis and characterization of novel nanostructured and amorphous materials; magnetic, optical, and mechanical properties on the mesoscale; the use of metals for medical and photonic applications; and neutron scattering and synchrotron radiation. His work has received distinctions at several international conferences. Other awards include the ETH Zurich’s Silver Medal for the excellence of his Ph.D. dissertation and the Masing Memorial Award of the German Society for Materials. Jörg Löffler was a member of the German National Merit Foundation from 1991 to 1997 and holds a Visiting Faculty position at the California Institute of Technology. He is a member of the editorial boards of Intermetallics and Metallurgical and Materials Transactions A.
