in 1966 Field-Flow Fractionation was invented by Prof. Calvin Giddings at University of Utah, Salt Lake City, USA. He was a highly respected scientist and outstanding personality who published a over 300 scientific articles and several books in the area of Field-Flow Fractionation (FFF) and in general separation science as well. Later Prof. Giddings was also twice nominated for the Nobel Prize in 1984 and in 1994 showing the outstanding level and impact of his unique esearch activities. In order to systematically study the Field-Flow Fractionation effect, he founded the FFFresearch Center at the University of Utah in 1972 which acted as a source for hundreds of FFF papers and where Giddings and his co-workers step by step developed the complete theory of Field-Flow Fractionation and all sub-techniques. In this FFFresearch Center Prof. Giddings and Dr. Marcus Myers designed and engineered the first real FFF prototypes which later have been used as templates for the commercial product development.
