Klaus von Klitzing is a German physicist known for discovery of the integer quantum Hall Effect, for which he was awarded the 1985 Nobel Prize in Physics. The Von Klitzing constant is named after Klaus von Klitzing, the discoverer of exact quantization. The quantum Hall effect also provides an extremely precise independent determination of the fine structure constant, a quantity of fundamental importance in quantum electrodynamics. The Von Klitzing Constant can be defined as h/e^{2} which is approximately equal to 25812.807557(18) Ω.

It can also be expressed in kgm^{2}s^{-3}A^{-2}, which is equal to 2.581 280 kgm^{2}s^{-3}A^{-2}. The inverse of the von Klitzing constant is equal to half that of the conductance quantum value. Von Klitzing's research focuses on the properties of low-dimensional electronic systems, typically in low temperatures and in high magnetic fields.
