Prof. Roberto De Renzi was awarded the 2014 Yamazaki prize at the µSR2014 conference in Grindelwald, Switzerland for his significant work in magnetism and superconductivity making effective bridges between the NMR and muon techniques.
Roberto De Renzi is Professor of Physics at the University of Parma and is recognised for his sustained and exceptional contributions to the development of the μSR technique to investigate solid-state physics. Roberto began his μSR career at CERN and has been a long-time user of the muon facilities at ISIS and PSI, as well as performing many pioneering NMR experiments at his lab in Parma. His work has made effective bridges between NMR and muon techniques and he is particularly well known for his work in magnetism and superconductivity. He is the author of 184 papers in international journals and the co-author of a condensed matter textbook. He was invited to 25 lectures over the past 5 years at international conferences, schools and workshops.
