Cyril Proust Quantum physicist

Cyril Proust develops new experimental setups under extreme conditions and has considerably improved the sensitivity of transport measurements in very high pulsed magnetic fields. His current research project is devoted to the study of high temperature superconductors and strongly correlated electrons systems in high magnetic fields.
