Herbert Jaeger has been promoted to professor of physics.
Jaeger earned master’s and doctoral degrees at Oregon State University; he also earned a graduate degree in electrical engineering from the Fachhochschule Dieburg in Germany. After a research appointment at the Max-Planck-Institute for Metals Research in Germany, he joined Miami’s faculty in 1992.
Jaeger’s research focuses on the study of structural and dynamic properties of ceramic materials at high temperatures using a nuclear hyperfine interaction technique. In addition, he collaborated with researchers from the Center for Photochemical Sciences at Bowling Green State University, the University of Toledo and some European universities on the preparation of thin-film semiconductors by pulsed laser deposition.
He teaches a wide range of undergraduate and graduate courses, including an advanced laboratory course on materials physics that he developed with a grant from the National Science Foundation.
Jaeger was on leave 1999-2000 at the University of Göttingen and the University of Konstanz, both in Germany, where he studied radiation damage in naturally occurring zirconium silicate.
He is a member of the international advisory committee for the International Conference on Hyperfine Interactions and helped organize the 12th International Conference on Hyperfine Interactions in Park City, Utah. Jaeger has presented his work at national and international conferences and is author and co-author of more than 50 research papers, many of which have Miami students as co-authors.
