Premio Nobel de Física 2016 para estudios sobre la materia en el mundo cuántico

El Premio Nobel de Física 2016 ha sido concedido, ex aequo, a David J. Thouless, por un lado, y a F. Duncan Haldane M. y J. Michael Kosterlitz, por otra, por revelar los "secretos exóticos de la materia". En el fallo se destaca que el galardón se les concede "por los descubrimientos teóricos de las transiciones de fase topológica y fases topológicas de la materia". Las transiciones de fase suceden cuando la materia cambia de fase, como cuando el hielo se derrite y se convierte en agua o el agua se evapora.

    The European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) opens its scientific laboratories and facilities to people working in academia and research organisations, industry, small and medium enterprises (SMEs), and more in general to the public and private sector. Similarly to the NFFA project in which we participate, the calls are for researchers who would like to use research infrastructures that are not available in their own centre, and are aimed to enhance the mobility and the collaboration within researchers and industries.
