Erwin Schrödinger(1887- 1961), an Austrian physicist received his Ph.D. in theoretical physics from the University of Vienna in 1910. In 1927, Schrodinger succeeded Max Planck at the University of Berlin at Planck's request. In 1933, Schrodinger left Berlin because of his opposition to Hitler and Nazi policies and returned to Austria in 1936. After the invasion of Austria by Germany, Schrodinger was forcibly removed from his professorship. He then moved to Dublin, Ireland where he remained for seventeen years. Schrodinger shared the Nobel Prize for Physics with P.A.M. Dirac in 1933.
