Our Grad Students & Postdocs

ASC is a great place for young scientists to launch their careers.

Maxime Matras, Chris Segal, Charlie Sanabria

The ASC advances the science and technology of superconductivity and particularly superconductivity applications. We do this by investigating low temperature and high temperature materials through our research grants and through our collaborations with other universities, national laboratories and industry. We continually educate post-graduate, graduate and undergraduate students by our research and public service.
