Hellmut Fritzsche (born 20 February 1927 in Berlin, Germany) is an American physicist. He came to the USA on a one-year Smith-Mundt fellowship in 1950/51. After receiving his Diplom in physics from the University of Göttingen in 1952 he returned to the USA. He earned his Ph.D. from Purdue University in 1954 where in the same year he became Instructor and in 1955 Assistant Professor. In 1957 he moved to the University of Chicago, where in 1963 he became a full professor and in 1996 retired. During his career at the University of Chicago he was director of its Materials Research laboratory 1973-77 and chairman of its Physics department 1977-86.

  • Hellmut Fritzsche (* 20. Februar 1927 in Berlin) ist ein deutsch-US-amerikanischer Festkörperphysiker. Fritzsche ging nach dem Diplom an der Universität Göttingen 1952 in die USA. 1954 promovierte er an der Purdue University, wo er im selben Jahr Instructor und 1955 Assistant Professor wurde. 1957 ging er als Assistant Professor an die University of Chicago, wo er 1963 Professor wurde und 2004 emeritiert wurde. Zeitweise war er Vorstand der Physik-Fakultät. Fritzsche ist bekannt für Arbeiten über den Metall-Insulator-Übergang in dotierten Halbleitern und über amorphe (nicht-kristalline) Materialien, zum Beispiel amorphem Silizium und insbesondere zur Rolle von eingebautem Wasserstoff in der Verbesserung von dessen elektronischen Eigenschaften. Ab 1967 war er Vizepräsident und Mitglied des Leitungsrats von Energy Conversion Devices Incorporated, der Entwicklungsfirma (zum Beispiel Solarzellen, Batterien) von Stanford Ovshinsky, mit dem er eng über die Anwendung amorpher Materialien zusammenarbeitete. 1989 erhielt er den Oliver E. Buckley Condensed Matter Prize. Er ist Ehrendoktor der Purdue University. (de)
