Jean-Marc Triscone is a Professor of Physics in the Condensed Matter Physics Department at the University of Geneva, leading a group working on nanoscale studies of ferroelectrics, electric field effects in correlated oxide systems, and oxide interface physics. He obtained his Ph.D. in 1987 with Professor Øystein Fischer. In 1990–1991 and in 1995 he was a visiting scientist at Stanford University. Since 1996, he has been a full Professor in Geneva. He has been a Fellow of the American Physical Society since 2006. His recent activities have focused on oxide interface physics, with the discovery of superconductivity at the interface.
The interface between two insulators is found to display ferromagnetism and superconductivity.
