Philip Kim wins the Oliver E. Buckley Condensed Matter Physics Prize

Phillip KimPhillip KimPhilip Kim, a MagLab user in the DC Field facility, was awarded this prize for discovering unconventional electronic properties of graphene. “From the early days in graphene research, accessing the high magnetic fields in the MagLab has been crucial to reveal the intriguing nature of Dirac particle under the extreme quantum condition,” the Columbia University professor said. “I have been greatly benefitted by the strong and essential support from the MagLab, allowing my team to explore the electronic structure of this fascinating material.” A member of the MagLab’s External Advisory Committee, Kim and his research team made waves earlier this year by observing a long-theorized energy pattern known as Hofstadter’s butterfly.
