Research Title
Deciphering the Complex Properties of Unconventional Superconductors

Section A, Location 14

Martin Greven’s research focuses on the experimental study of copper-oxide superconductors, one of the most active research fields in physics during the past three decades. Such superconductors have significant technological potential, yet their enigmatic properties defy conventional wisdom. Professor Greven has pioneered the growth of pristine crystals of the most desirable of these quantum materials and made several breakthrough discoveries regarding their electromagnetic properties using a variety of experimental techniques.
