Ulf Hammerschmidt attended the Technische Universität Braunschweig in 1972, where he earned his BS, MS, and PhD in physics. After graduating, Hammerschmidt joined the university as a research fellow, where his research topics included Quantum effects in electrical resistance, the Hall Effect, and thermal transport properties. As a specialist in the fields of thermophysical properties of solids and fluids and transient measurement technique, Dr. Ulf Hammerschmidt served as a member of the Board of Governors for the International Thermal Conductivity Conference. As the co-author of two books and 120 scientific articles, Hammerschmidt has 8 patents to his name, including a point-shape heat source for measuring thermal conductivity and a method for determining flow rate of fluid.
