Jacob Linder obtained his Ph.D. in physics from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in 2009. In 2010, he received awards from the Royal Norwegian Society of Sciences and Letters and from ExxonMobil for his work on quantum transport and proximity effects in unconventional superconducting hybrid systems. He is now an Associate Professor at NTNU, Norway. His research addresses a variety of topics related to proximity effects and quantum transport in hybrid structures, magnetization dynamics and spin-transfer torque, and properties of unconventional superconductivity.

Viewpoint: Quantized topological surface states promise a quantum Hall state in topological insulators

The first experimental observation of Landau levels in the surface states of a three-dimensional topological insulator confirms the levels obey unconventional quantization rules. Read More »
