A Université de Sherbrooke Postdoctoral Fellow Saluted for his Breakthrough
The Fonds de recherche du Québec (FRQ) recently named Sven Badoux, a postdoctoral fellow in physics at Université de Sherbrooke, Star Student-Researcher in Nature and Technology for the month of October 2016.
A member of the research group of Professor Louis Taillefer, Chairholder of the Canada Research Chair in Quantum Materials, the Sherbrooke recipient is working on deciphering the mystery of superconductivity in cuprates. The objective is to enhance their performance so they can conduct electricity at room temperature.
With his team, he has discovered the fundamental signature of the superconducting phase in copper oxides at very high temperatures.
The scientific breakthrough was the subject of an article published in the prestigious Nature journal.
Those named Star Student-Researcher of the month receive a $1000 grant.
