Full professor: Nigel Hussey
High Field Magnet Laboratory
Project Leader – QuMat.1-RU-3.2B
Nigel Hussey has been full professor since 2006, initially at the University of Bristol then from 2013 at Radboud University. From 2013 until 2018, he also served as director of the High Field Magnet Laboratory. His research focuses on precision measurements of the transport properties of exotic, low-dimensional metals and superconductors in high magnetic fields. He is credited with the first experimental determination of the full Fermi surface of a high temperature superconductor, and the discovery of the strange metallic state. In recognition of these discoveries, he has been a recipient of the Charles Vernon Boys medal (now the Henry Moseley medal) from the Institute of Physics, the inaugural Brian Pippard superconductivity prize and a Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit award. He is also an elected Fellow of the Institute of Physics. In 2019, Hussey received an ERC Advanced grant.
