2022 Blaise Pascal Medallist in Materials Science
In recognition of her contributions for her work related to the design and realization of new quantum materials, with impact to quantum and energy conversion technologies. Prof. Felser’s work has led to fundamental breakthroughs in materials science and condensed matter research. Together with her team and cooperation partners, she has developed a self-contained program whereby new topological phenomena are theoretically predicted, quantum materials that would exhibit these phenomena are grown, experiments where these properties are expected to emerge are designed and implemented and thus novel effects are confirmed.
