Professor Radu Coldea

Professor Radu Coldea recognised by APS

Quantum materials
Condensed Matter Physics

Professor Radu Coldea has been made a 2023 Fellow of the American Physical Society for his significant contributions to the understanding of quantum magnetism and quantum phase transitions using both neutron and resonant x-ray scattering techniques. Recommended for the honour by the APS Topical Group on Magnetism and its Applications (GMAG), it is recognition of Professor Coldea’s significant contributions to physics.

‘I feel very honoured to receive this award and I would like to share it with current and former members of my research group, Quantum Magnetism and Quantum Phase Transitions, and with my many research collaborators, both experimentalists and theorists, with whom I have very much enjoyed working over the years on many challenging, but rewarding research projects to explore emergent phenomena in quantum magnets’.  

‘Enormous congratulations to Radu,’ comments Professor Ian Shipsey, Head of the Department of Physics. ‘His research in quantum materials – in particular quantum magnetism and quantum phase transitions – is leading the way and he is a great asset to our department.’
