Superconductors are materials recognized by zero electrical resistance, and special magnetic properties.
Magneto-optics combine light polarization and magnetism, and is capable of visualizing magnetic field distributions.
I develop, and use magneto-optical methods to study superconducting materials.
Higher education and employment history
I hold a PhD degree in physics, in superconductivity, and have worked at the dept. of physics since 1992.
I have also been heavily involved in popular science and outreach activities, including the Astrofestival.
The Norwegian Research Council prize for popular science in 2001
The University of Oslo popular Science prize in 2003
