Brett D. Ellman

Heat is a nuisance. At least, that is the point of view taken by low temperature physicists, insofar as thermal energy disturbs the very delicate, subtle, quantum mechanical phenomena they study. Indeed, the label "ultra-low energy physics" describes much of the work of Prof. Ellman, and reflects his interest in materials like exotic superconductors, unusual magnets, and positively strange insulators. As an example, Prof.
