Walter Schottky , sometimes also written Schottki, (July 23rd, 1886 with Zurich, March 4th, 1976 with Pretzfeld, in Bavaria) is a physicist and German electronics specialist. He is also the son of the mathematician Friedrich Schottky (1851 - 1935).
After its studies of physics, Schottky is professor of theoretical physics to the Université of Rostock, of 1923 to 1927. He works then for Siemens & Halske in Berlin, then in their research laboratories with Pretzfeld. He undertakes to it basic research in the field of electronics and the Semi-conducteur S.
One owes him mainly of the results in electrical engineering and physics of the electric and semiconductor charges. The Effect Schottky, the Diode Schottky (discovery in 1928), the Defect of Schottky and the equation of Schottky (also called law of Langmuir-Schottky) are named according to him.
In its memory, the price Walter Schottky was created, which rewards for work of first importance in physics of the condensed matter. The institute Walter Schottky of the technical university of Munich and the house Walter Schottky of the technical training school of Aachen owe him their names.
