Jason W. A. Robinson has a professorial chair in materials physics at the University of Cambridge, UK, where he is a joint head of the Department of Materials Science & Metallurgy, director of the Quantum Materials & Devices Group, and codirector of the Centre for Materials Physics. His experimental research focuses on developing multifunctional materials and nanoelectronic devices, approaching key problems in the fields of spintronics, superconductivity, and quantum technologies. His contributions to these fields include pioneering studies on triplet proximity effects at superconductor-magnet interfaces and helping to establish the subfield of superconducting spintronics.


Superconducting Vortices Made Without Magnetic Fields

A quantum phase of matter detected in an iron-based superconductor could host Majorana zero modes—quasiparticles that may serve as building blocks for future quantum computers. Read More »
