About the Author

Michael Hirscher is group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Metals Research, Stuttgart, Germany. He studied physics at the University of Stuttgart, Germany and at the Oregon State University, Corvallis, USA, receiving a Master?s degree, a Diploma, and Ph.D. degree in 1982, 1984, and 1987, respectively. For his achievements he was awarded the Otto Hahn Medal of the Max Planck Society in 1988. Prior to taking his position in Stuttgart, he spent a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, USA. He is a pioneer in the area of physisorption of hydrogen, studying the most advanced materials and revealing the limitations of carbon nanotubes. His current research interests focus on nanoporous and nanoscale materials for hydrogen storage.
