2015 Oliver E. Buckley Condensed Matter Physics Prize

Awarded by the American Physics Society

Elected to National Academy of Sciences 2015


Our group’s general aim is to contribute to the understanding of current problems in Physics including gravitational physics, quantum physics and condensed matter physics of strongly correlated electron systems. We use novel experimental techniques that are mostly developed in our laboratory.
