Dr. Peter Armbruster
Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung mbH, Darmstadt, Germany
Peter Armbruster, born July 25, 1931 in Dachau (Bavaria). Studied physics at the Technical Universities of Stuttgart and München 1952-1957. Ph.D. 1961 and habilitation 1964 under H. Maier-Leibnitz, Technical University München. Research in fission, interaction of heavy ions in matter and atomic physics with fission product beams at the Research Center of Jülich (1964-1970). Since 1971 Senior Scientist at the Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung Darmstadt (GSI).
Various research fields in heavy ion physics. Starting with his PhD work in 1959, the development of recoil separators equipped with new detector systems have given the experimental base for most of the scientific activities. Main activities in the synthesis and production of new elements and isotopes, and in studies of reaction mechanisms allowing to make the new nuclei. Studies in the field of characteristic X-rays produced in ion-atom collisions, among others X-ray emission from transient superheavy collision systems and of the spectroscopy of the latter. Experiments on track formation of heavy ions by neutron and X-ray small angle scattering. 1989-1992 research Director of the European Institute Laue-Langevin (ILL), Grenoble. Affiliated to the University of Cologne (1968) and to the Technical University of Darmstadt since 1984.
About 250 research articles. Please see short list enclosed for main publications.
Received the Max-Born Medal awarded by the Institute of Physics London and the Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft (1988), and the Stern-Gerlach Medal awarded by the Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft (1997). Bundesverdienstkreuz 1. Klasse (1986) and Hessischer Verdienstorden (1995). Honorary doctoral degrees from 3 european universities.
