Welcome to Daniel Grün, who is joining the Theory team in the frame of our Excellence Fellowship for master students.
Supersolids are fluid and solid at the same time. In jointly collaboration work, together with Thierry Giamarchi, theoretical physicist from the University of Geneva, we have for the first time investigated what happens when such a state is brought out of balance. We discovered a soft form of solid of high interest for science. As we report in Nature Physics, we were also able to reverse the process and restore supersolidity.
Philipp and Giammaria held their defenses for their PhD thesis and are now officially Doctors of Philosophy. Congratulations and we wish you all the best for your future!
