CNRS Bronze Medal awarded to Charis Quay from the LPS


A University Lecturer (maître de conferences) attached to the LPS, Charis Quay, is one of the 2017 recipients of the CNRS Bronze Medal.

Each year, the CNRS recognises young academics whose work marks them out as talented specialists in their field. The Bronze Medal, awarded this year to forty early career faculty and researchers across all academic disciplines, is an encouragement from the CNRS to continue research which is well under way and is already fruitful.

A member of the Nanostructures à la Nanoseconde group, Charis Quay’s present research interests lie at the intersection of spin physics and superconductivity, with a particular focus on non-equilibrium magnetism (dynamics) in superconductor-based mesoscopic devices and on the manipulation of coherent quantum states through their spin degrees of freedom. Recent highlights from her work include : (1) the first demonstration of non-equilibrium magnetism in conventional superconductors and (2) the only demonstration of quasiparticle spin resonance in a conventional superconductor.
