The Highly Cited Researchers List 2019 lists the world’s most influential researchers from 21 scientific disciplines. The department of Materials Science @ FAU is continuously ranked in that list consecutively for several years. This year, Prof Christoph J Brabec and Prof Patrik Schmuki have again received this most prestigious award. HCR is recognizing the world’s most influential researchers of the past decade, demonstrated by the scientific and technological achievements and their ability to publish their key findings in highly-cited papers. Only the top 1% cited researchers in their respective discipline are listed in that ranking. The fact that the material sciences of the FAU, actually the smallest department of the technical faculty, are represented in the HCR list for many consecutive years underlines the innovation and research power of the material sciences.
