University of Cambridge

Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy

Cambridge, UK

During recent Research Assessment Exercise the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy was ranked as one of the fourth top departments in UK. Prof. Głowacki leads the department’s Applied Superconductivity and Cryoscience Group (, which has a broad, multidisciplinary research programme focused on the development and application of high medium and low temperature superconductivity and hydrogen technologies, blending physics with heavy industry. Prof. Głowacki is currently engaged in three high-profile collaborative projects, with major UK and EU universities and companies, in superconductivity, ink jet printing of electroceramics, hydrogen generation and liquefaction, and energy storage. He is also interested in biomagnetic applications, where the combination of superconducting and magnetic materials can be beneficial for cancer treatment. He lectures in superconductivity and nanomaterials. In the past prof. Glowacki was coordinating on behalf of Cambridge University 12 EU projects (also: 6 UK, 4 Japanese and 1 USA) and currently is conducting on behalf of Cambridge University two EU projects NESPA, and EFECTS. Under EU SCENET project he created a series of Lectures on Superconductivity
