Grieg Grant to researcher Alireza Qaiumzadeh

Researcher Alireza Qaiumzadeh has received the GRIEG Grant by the Polish National Science Centre, together with researcher Anna Dyrdał from Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań (AMU). The title of the project is "Spin and charge transport in low-dimensional novel quantum materials".

The three-year grant budget is about Euro 1.365 million, and funds the hiring a PhD candidate in NTNU and three PhD candidates and two postdoctoral fellows in AMU. The GRIEG call is part of the Basic Research Programme operated by the Polish National Science Centre under the EEA and Norway Grants.

NFR/FRIPRO Grant to researcher Sol H.Jacobsen

 

December 2019

RCN/FRIPRO Grant to researcher Sol H. Jacobsen

Researcher Sol H. Jacobsen received the grant for her project Superconducting Triplet Spintronics: generation, control and application. With the help of curvature, cavities and spin-orbit coupling, the project willl go beyond rigid proximity-coupled systems to explore new directions for low-dissipation superconducting spintronics. The funds from the Norwegian Research Council will enable one Ph.D. candidate and one postdoctoral researcher to join project leader Sol H.Jacobsen.

Grant to Dennis Meier

ERC Consolidator Grant to professor Dennis Meier

Professor Dennis Meier received the ERC grant. With the project “ATRONICS”, Dennis and his team aim to emulate the behavior of electronic components at the atomic scale. The research will provide new insight into the physics of functional oxide materials and potentially lead to major breakthroughs in electronics. If the team succeeds, their research will enable energy efficient and ultra-small circuitry and networks, playing a key role in the transition from nano- to atomic-scale electronics.

Primary Investigator, Professor Asle Sudbø has been named a Fellow of the American Physical Society 2019

Professor Asle Sudbø was nominated as APS Fellow by the Division of Condensed Matter Physics, and the citation reads  “For his pioneering contributions to the theory of vortex matter in strongly fluctuating superconductors, superfluids, and multicomponent condensates.”

Each year, no more than one half of one percent of the Society membership is recognized by their peers for election to the status of Fellow in the American Physical Society. This is a prestigious recognition that also shows his important contributions to the research at our center, QuSpin, a center of excellence (SFF). 

The APS Fellowship Program recognizes members who have made exceptional contributions to the physics enterprise in physics research, important applications of physics, leadership in or service to physics, or significant contributions to physics education.
