Professor Hudson's main interests lie in nanoscale investigations of strongly correlated electron systems, such as high temperature superconductors (HTSC). In particular, he is interested in the fundamental question of how defects and disorder affect these systems, as well as the more practical question of what observations about these effects at the microscopic level can tell us about the macroscopic nature of these systems.
Professor Eric Hudson joined the Department of Physics as an Assistant Professor in January 2002. He received a B.A. in Physics/Linguistics in 1992 from the University of Chicago, and completed his Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkeley, in 1999. After a brief postdoctoral tenure at UC-Berkeley, continuing his research on scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) of impurities and disorder in superconductors, he became an NRC Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Electron Physics Group at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), studying spin polarized STM.
