H. Riel received her M.S. degree in Physics from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany, in 1998 and followinglt a Ph.D. degree in physics from the University of Bayreuth, Germany, in 2003.
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 staff member, and since 2008 she has lead the Nanoscale Electronics Group at the 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.
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.
