Moll Earns Nicholas Kurti Science Prize

Photonics Spectra
Aug 2018
Oxford Instruments has announced Philip Moll as the winner of the 2018 Nicholas Kurti Science Prize for Europe.

Philip MollMoll is recognized for leading the development of microstructuring techniques, allowing the fabrication of bespoke devices and experiments from complex quantum materials, and thereby enabling entirely new classes of low-temperature and high-magnetic-field measurements. His research group, Microstructured Quantum Matter (MQM), is currently transitioning to the Institute of Materials at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL).

“I am most grateful that the panel has honored my group’s research with this award,” Moll said. “We aim to explore how the shape and size of complex materials lead to new behavior and, possibly, applications. In this work, curiosity is what motivates my team to challenge our current understanding by creating new shapes from single crystal materials. The outstanding MQM team and our wonderful collaborators have made these projects possible.”

The objective of the Nicholas Kurti Science Prize is to promote and recognize the work of young scientists in the areas of low temperatures and high-magnetic fields within Europe.


GLOSSARY
quantum
Smallest amount into which the energy of a wave can be divided. The quantum is proportional to the frequency of the wave. See photon.
