Jack H. Freed (born April 19, 1938) is an American chemist known for his pioneering work in electron paramagnetic resonance (aka electron spin resonance) spectroscopy. He is the Frank and Robert Laughlin Professor of Physical Chemistry, Emeritus, at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York.

Biography[edit]

Jack Freed was born in New York City. He received his bachelor's degree in chemical engineering in 1958 from Yale University and his Ph.D. in chemistry in 1962 from Columbia University.

Freed is currently the Frank and Robert Laughlin Professor of Physical Chemistry, Emeritus, in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Cornell University[1]. In 2001, Freed founded the National Biomedical Center for Advanced Electron Spin Resonance Technology (ACERT)[2] funded by National Institutes of Health and has been its Director since then. In 2004, he was an editor for Journal of Physical Chemistry. Before that he was a fellow in numerous places such as Alfred P. Sloan Research Foundation, American Academy of Arts and Sciences, American Physical Society, John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, Hebrew University Institute for Advanced Studies, and Weizmann Institute of Science.
