C5. Commission on Low Temperature Physics
Mandate - art. 1
Proposed Sites to Host LT28 (in 2017)
Proposals are now being sought from those who have an interest to host the 28th International Conference on Low Temperature Physics to be held in 2017. By natural rotation, LT28 is expected to be held in Europe; LT26 was in Beijing, China, in 2011 and LT27 will be held in Buenos Aires in 2014.
Deadline for receipt of nominations is April
18 15, 2014. The C5 Commission anticipates that the selection will be finalized during its meeting in Buenos Aires at the time of LT27 (early August, 2014) and announced at the end of that meeting.
IUPAP Young Scientist Prize in Low Temperature Physics 2014
The IUPAP Young Scientist Prize in Low Temperature Physics will be awarded to the following three scientists during the 27th International Conference on Low Temperature Physics (LT27) to be held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, August 6 - 13, 2014. Invited presentations will be made at the Conference.
- Cory R. Dean [The City College of New York, USA]: For his development of graphene on boron nitride and subsequent discovery of the Hofstadter's butterfly.
- Leonardo DiCarlo [Delft Univeristy of Technology, the Netherlands]: For his outstanding low-temperature experiments on semiconducting and superconducting mesoscopic circuits, and for establishing an innovative research program on measurement and feedback control of superconducting qubits.
- Mathieu Le Tacon [MPI for Solid State Research, Germany]: For his innovative photon scattering experiments elucidating spin and charge ordering phenomena and excitations in high-temperature superconductors and other correlated-electron materials.
