Professor Andy Millis will receive the Hamburg Prize for Theoretical Physics 2017, including prize money of 40,000 Euros, for his groundbreaking research on the electronic properties of correlated materials. He made essential contributions to our understanding of high transition-temperature superconductivity in copper-oxide materials and proposed how superconductivity could be obtained at even higher temperatures.
Each year CUI and the Joachim Herz Stiftung jointly award the “Hamburg Prize for Theoretical Physics”. The award honors outstanding contributions of a highly accomplished international researcher to the field of Photon Science. This research field comprises topics like Quantum Optics, Laser Physics, Ultrafast Physics, X-ray Physics.
