H. Riel received the M.S. degree in physics from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany, in 1998 and the Ph.D. degree in physics from the University of Bayreuth, Germany, in 2003._x000D_ After an internship with the Hewlett–Packard Research Laboratory, Palo Alto, CA, she joined the IBM Zurich Research Laboratory, Zurich, Switzerland, as a Student, pursuing her research on organic light-emitting devices. In 2003, she became a Research StaffMember, and since 2008, she has lead the Nanoscale Electronics Group, IBM Zurich Research Laboratory. Her main research interests include organic and inorganic semiconductors motivated by the quest for future electronic and optoelectronic devices. Her current research interests include the exploration of the fundamental properties of Si and III/V nanowires and their application for steep-slope devices._x000D_ Dr. Riel was a recipient of the Applied Physics Award of the Swiss Physical Society in 2005, for her outstanding scientific contributions to the development of the 20-in full-color amorphous-silicon active-matrix display based on organic light-emitting diodes. In September 2003, she was elected to TR100, which was the annual list of the world’s 100 top young innovators by Technology Review, MIT’s Magazine of Innovation.
