CV Peter Hänggi - Deutsch (pdf)
Search among the members of the Leopoldina for experts in specific fields or research topics. After entering a name in the "Name" field, click on "Search" to go directly to a member profile. With the input and selection in the fields "City" and „Country", you can limit your search locally or regionally, or target specific sections of the Leopoldina. Alternatively or in combination a full-text search is possible for all member profiles - use the upper input field. The use of operators like AND, NOT or * is permitted in the full-text search. For example, you may search for "genetics" or "*genet*" to get results with "genetic" or "molecular genetics". For a new search please click on the following link or use the full-text search in the right column.
Main research interests: Theoretical Physics – Statistical Physics, Brownian motors
Peter Hänggi is distinguished for having made salient contributions in the area of statistical physics in and far from equilibrium and for driven quantum mechanics. Partly he has achieved these key works at the Polytechnic Institute of New York and at the University of Augsburg. He is known worldwide for his key contributions to reaction rate theory, driven quantum mechanics, quantum dissipation, relativistic Brownian motion, relativistic thermodynamics, and his discoveries of universal quantum fluctuation relations.
Apart from making guiding contributions to the phenomenon of Stochastic Resonance, he is particularly known for his discovery of coherent destruction of tunnelling and his initiation of the field of Brownian Motors, Quantum Fluctuation Relations and “Phononics”: Manipulating heat flow with electronic analogues and beyond.
