Eugene E. Haller is Professor of Materials Science at UC Berkeley and holds a joint appointment at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory where he heads the Electronic Materials Program. He received his Ph.D. degree in nuclear and applied physics from the University of Basel, Switzerland for surface studies of large volume p-i-n germanium diodes used as gamma-ray detectors. His research interests cover a wide spectrum of semiconductor topics including basic semiconductor physics, thin film and bulk crystal growth and advanced detectors for electromagnetic radiation ranging from the far-infrared to gamma rays, neutrinos and dark matter. In recent years he has pioneered numerous scientific studies and applications of isotopically controlled semiconductors. He has authored and co-authored over 800 scientific/technical publications.

He is a fellow of the American Physical Society and the American Association for the Advancement of Science, has won an Alexander von Humboldt U.S. Senior Scientist Award in 1986, two Miller Research Professorships in 1990 and 2001, the Max-Planck-Research Prize in 1994 and the James McGroddy Prize for New Materials of the American Physical Society in March 1999. He held visiting professorships at Keio University I Tokyo, at the Max-Planck-Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart, at the Imperial College in London and at the DLR (German Aerospace Corporation) in Berlin. He is a member of the Editorial Advisory Board of the "Journal of Physics and Chemistry of Solids," of "Materials Science Foundations" and of the "Journal of Applied Physics Reviews."
