John Louis Moll (December 21, 1921 – July 19, 2011) was an American electrical engineer, notable for his contributions to solid-state physics.
Moll was born in Wauseon, Ohio, and obtained the B.Sc. in Physics and the Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from The Ohio State University in 1943 and 1952 respectively. The Ebers-Moll transistor model, and the theory of the p-n-p-n switch, came from this effort.
Moll was the recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowship in 1964; Howard N. Potts Medal, Franklin Institute, 1967, and received the IEEE Edison Medal in 1991 "for pioneering contributions to diffused and oxide-masked silicon devices, transistor analysis, the p-n-p-n switch, and optoelectronics."
