Ctirad Uher is the C. Wilbur Peters Collegiate Professor in Physics at University of Michigan. He received his Ph.D. in physics from University of New South Wales, under the direction of Professor Julian Goldsmid. He is a fellow of the American Physical Society, and was president of the International Thermoelectric Society. His research interests cover a wide area including thermoelectric materials, superconductors and diluted magnetic semiconductors.

Among his many accomplishments, Professor Uher is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, Chair of the University of Michigan Physics Department (1994-2004), and holds an honorary degree from the University of Pardubice in the Czech Republic.

Uher Group

Research Interests: 
Professor Uher’s research group focuses on the development of novel, highly efficient thermoelectric materials; on the study of transport properties in high-Tc superconductors; and on the investigations of diluted magnetic semiconductors. His research group conducts measurements over a broad range of external parameters that include temperatures from 1200K down to 10 mK, magnetic fields to 90 kilogauss, and pressures reaching 100 kbar.
