Robert (Bob) Shull is the group leader of the Magnetic Materials Group at the National Institute of Standards & Technology where he has devoted more than 25 years of his career.
Among his accomplishments, Dr. Shull was a founding member of the subcommittee that drafted the original National Nanotechnology Initiative in 2001; he discovered the magnetocaloric effect in nanocomposites and was the first to explain the novel attractable levitation found in some high-TC materials; he was part of the collaboration that prepared the first thin films of a high-TC superconductor by the laser ablation process and initially set up the rapid solidification facility that led to the discovery of quasicrystals in 1980. Early in his career, Dr. Shull discovered the reversed Curie temperature phenomenon in Fe70A130, which was instrumental in his recent discovery of spin density waves in the same alloy system (a phenomenon predicted to exist 40 years ago but never found).
Dr. Shull received his doctorate from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, has written more than 140 publications, won several awards and been a TMS member for 30 years. During that time, he served as a committee member and chair, and division chair. In his spare time, Dr. Shull leads a six-month pre-high school science program.
