Axel Hoffmann selected as 2022 Highly Cited Researcher
The Web of Science has selected Axel Hoffmann as a Highly Cited Researcher in 2022, which is the fourth year in a row. The list recognizes leading researchers in the sciences and social sciences from around the world. It is based on an analysis of journal article publication and citation data, an objective measure of a researcher’s influence, from 2011-2021. More details can be found in the Illinois News Feed.
Hoffmann participates in a large research center exploring quantum materials for neuromorphic computation
Axel Hoffmann is once again part of the DOE-funded Energy Frontier Research Center on Quantum-Materials for Energy Efficient Neuromorphic-Comptuting (Q-MEEN-C), which is led by the University of California – San Diego. This center has been renewed for another four year with a total funding of $12.6M. Our main focus is to explore magnetic oscillating systems, which can form complex networks of dynamic systems that may resemble the functionalities found in the natural brain. A detailed description can be found in the accompanying news stories from UIUC and UCSD.
