Gilbert George Lonzarich born in 1945 and he is a solid-state physicist. Currently he is serving to the Cavendish Laboratory at the University of Cambridge. The research of Gil Lonzarich focuses on solids where the interaction between electrons can lead to unconventional states of matter. His work has addressed different material classes, including itinerant magnets (such as MnSi), heavy-fermion materials, and ferroelectrics. One groundbreaking result for the field of unconventional super conductivity was the demonstration that the suppression of antiferromagnetic order in heavy-fermion materials, i.e. a quantum-critical point, can induce superconductivity. He is honored with many Prestigious awards Fellow of the Royal Society, Rumford Medal, EPS Euro physics Prize, Max Born Prize.
