Head of the CLAS

Physics professor Mark William Meisel was awarded an honorary degree of “doctor honoris causa” by Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice, Slovak Republic.

Meisel was recognized for his contributions in the areas of ultra-low temperature physics, quantum fluids and solids, and quantum low dimensional magnetism. His research contributed significantly to building a center of low temperature physics at Pavol Jozef Šafárik University.

“It is an absolute honor for me to receive this special recognition,” Meisel said in his acceptance speech. “I want to acknowledge direct and indirect support from the University of Florida, Pavol Josef Šafárik University, the national funding agencies of both countries, and US Steel-Košice.”

Meisel, a university educator and experimental physicist, has research interests in a wide range of subjects: quantum fluids and solids, including superfluid 3He and solid 4He; quantum magnetism and chemistry of low dimensional magnetism; the physics of biomagnetism; and nanophysics.

“All of our fields of research will evolve and diversify, energized by both hypothesis and curiosity-driven science,” Meisel said. “With open minds and free spirits, we will have fun, especially with respect to educating everyone at all levels about our discoveries and their implications.”

In 2009, Meisel was recognized by the American Physical Society for significant contributions to research in the field of magnetic and magneto-optic qualities of low-dimensional materials and nanostructures.

Meisel also works at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee, Fla., where he is a member of NHMFL Dirac Fellowship selection committee. He contributes significantly to organizing cooperation among research centers in the U.S. and Slovakia.
