The Zukunftskolleg is warmly welcoming Senior Fellow Viktor V. Kabanov from the Department of Complex Matter at the Jozef Stefan Institute in Ljubljana, Slovenia. He has been nominated by Jure Demsar. After his last stay in Konstanz in autumn 2012, this time the Senior Fellow will be our guest until June 11, 2013. The theoretical physicist is an expert in superconductivity and ultrafast phenomena in complex solids. During his stay he will join forces with experimental colleagues at the University of Konstanz to work on the projects “Electron relaxation in noble metals” and „Superconducting gap dynamics in electron doped cuprate high temperature superconductors“.
