Electrical and Computer Engineering
Professor Anlage, Ph.D., California Institute of Technology, 1988, is an experimentalist interested in the basic physics and applications of superconductivity, the use of near-field microwave microscopes to investigate the nano-scale fundamental physics of correlated electron systems, and experimental quantum chaos.
Prof. Anlage has investigated the mechanism of high-temperature superconductivity in the copper-oxide materials through measurements of microwave surface impedance and fluctuation conductivity. His main interests are in elucidating the electron pairing mechanism, measuring the intrinsic nonlinear response in the Meissner state, and understanding the nature of the superconductor/normal phase transition in high-Tc materials. All of this comes from measurements of the electrodynamic response of superconductors by various means, including resonant and non-resonant rf, microwave, and millimeter-wave techniques.
