James Sauls is Professor of Physics at Northwestern University. He received his Ph.D. in theoretical physics from the State University of New York at Stony Brook, was a postdoctoral fellow at the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics in Copenhagen, assistant professor at Princeton University, and held visiting research and faculty appointments at the CNRS and Joseph Fourier University in Grenoble. His research interests are in theoretical physics, quantum fluids and superconductivity, phase transitions, and matter under extreme conditions. Honors include the John Bardeen Prize in superconductivity, the Max Planck Research Prize in Theoretical Physics from the Max Planck Society and Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, and Fellow of the American Physical Society.


Viewpoint: Half-Quantum Vortices in Superfluid Helium

Researchers working with superfluid helium in a porous medium have generated vortices with half the quantum unit of fluid flow. Read More »
