Professor Séamus Davis to join Quantum Materials Group

27 November 2018

We are delighted to announce that Professor Séamus Davis will join the Department of Physics from from 1st January 2019 as a member of the Quantum Materials Group. Professor Davis, currently the James Gilbert White Distinguished Professor in the Physical Sciences at Cornell University, is one of the pioneers of low-temperature Scanning Tunnelling Microscopy and Spectroscopy (STM/STS).

Professor Davis will build an STM/STS programme in the ultra-stable laboratories of the Department's new Beecroft Building. Professor Paolo Radaelli, leader of the Quantum Materials Group, said: "These laboratories were specifically designed for science requiring extreme levels of environmental control. We are very proud of the facilities we built, which have made Oxford attractive to one of the leaders in the field."
