About the PNAS Member Editor
Name Davis, J. C. Seamus
Location University of Oxford
Primary Field Physics
Secondary Field Applied Physical Sciences
 Election Citation
Davis utilized scanning tunneling microscopy to obtain highly detailed images of high-temperature superconductive compounds. His images have provided details about the anomalously rich electronic structure that facilitates the unprecedented properties of these materials.
 Research Interests
Davis' active research interests are in the macroscopic quantum physics of emergent quantum matter including studies of superconductors, superfluids and supersolids; Kondo, Weyl and Hund metals; magnetic and Kondo topological condensates; spin & monopole liquids. Virtually all of these projects involved the invention of unprecedented scientific instruments and technologies to allow human perception of the macroscopic quantum physics of quantum matter.
