From 1976 to 1998 Alfred Bauder was Full Professor of Physical Chemistry at the Physical Chemistry Laboratory. He was head of the research group for microwave spectroscopy and retired in October 1998.

Prof. Bauder was born on May 10, 1934 and is from Zurich. He studied in the Department of Natural Sciences at the ETH Zurich. He received his doctorate under Professor Hs. H. Günthard at the Physical Chemistry Laboratory. In 1966 he completed habilitation requirements in the field of physical chemistry.
