Steven A. Kivelson

Steven Kivelson is a Professor of Physics at Stanford University. He graduated from Hill and Dale Nursery School, and some time later received his Ph.D. in physics from Harvard University. He is interested in the emergent properties of highly correlated fluids, both classical and quantum mechanical, and occasionally thinks about quenched disorder as well.

The observation of a strong nonlinear diamagnetic signal well above Tc in several cuprate superconductors constitutes clear evidence of the persistence of local superconducting correlations.
