Professor Jeff Tallon is Professor of Physics at Robinson Research Institute, Victoria University of Wellington. He is internationally known for his research and discoveries in high-Tc superconductors (HTS), which are currently being developed for applications across all sectors – health, transport, energy, mining and minerals processing, and the research sector. His research includes the physics and materials science of HTS – thermodynamics, magnetism, electronic transport properties, novel materials, and flux pinning.  Jeff’s other research interests include nanotechnology, hybrid organic/inorganic materials, spin crossover materials and physics at high pressure. He has received many awards for his work, including the Rutherford Medal, the Dan Walls Medal for Physics and, along with Dr Bob Buckley, the inaugural Prime Minister’s Science Medal. Professor Tallon is a Visiting Professor at the Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge University and EPFL, Lausanne. Bio
