Abraham LiboffIt is with deep sadness that I inform you of the death of Professor Emeritus Abraham Liboff who passed away on January 9, 2023. Dr. Liboff joined the Oakland University community in the Department of Physics on August 15, 1972, where he served until his retirement in August 2000.

During his tenure here at OU, Dr. Liboff was Chair of the Department of Physics. He is credited with 111 research publications, more than two dozen patents and nearly 3,400 scholarly citations during his career.

The family held a memorial service for Dr. Liboff in Delray Beach, Florida on January 13, 2023.

The University community extends heartfelt condolences to the Liboff family and friends during this very difficult time.
