Professor Andrew Millis will receive the 2017 Hamburg Prize for Theoretical Physics for his groundbreaking research on the electronic properties of correlated materials. He made essential contributions to the understanding of high transition-temperature superconductivity in copper-oxide materials and proposed how superconductivity could be obtained at even higher temperatures.
The Hamburg Prize for Theoretical Physics was established in 2010 by the cluster of excellence, “Frontiers in Quantum Photon Science”, which was supported by the Joachim Herz Stiftung. Since 2013 the prize is awarded jointly by the foundation and The Hamburg Centre for Ultrafast Imaging (CUI).
The award ceremony will take place on 9 November 2017 during the annual CUI Colloquium at Science Campus Bahrenfeld in Hamburg.
