Erwin L. Hahn (born June 9, 1921) is a U.S. physicist, best known for his work on nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR).[1] In 1950 he discovered the spin echo.

He received his B.S. in Physics from Juniata College and his M.S. and Ph.D. from The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He has been Professor Emeritus at the University of California, Berkeley since 1991 and was professor of physics, 1955-91. In 1999 Hahn was awarded the Comstock Prize in Physics from the National Academy of Sciences.[2]
