Dr Philip Brydon has been a lecturer in the Department of Physics, University of Otago, since 2015.
Superconductivity is a low-temperature quantum state of matter where electricity can flow without resistance. Despite intense study, we still have a poor understanding of the many “unconventional” superconductors.
Phillip’s research aims to develop a microscopic description of these enigmatic but technologically important superconductors, and how this relates to their observable properties.
The physics of the solid state offers an amazing variety of quantum phenomena. Amongst the most exotic is superconductivity - the ability of material to conduct electricity without resistance.Dr Philip Brydon
