The quantum solid
is remarkable object which reveal macroscopic quantum phenomena, such as superfluidity and BoseEinstein condensation (BEC) of solid [sup.4]He  which were reported by many authors [2,3].
For more than 50 years, the Mott-Hubbard paradigm has provided the abiding theoretical framework for rationalizing the electronic and magnetic properties of "complex" quantum solids
defined as those that exhibit explicit collective quantum effects, such as high-temperature superconductivity.
Mariana Weissmann, professor, department of physics, Argentine National Research Council, advanced the understanding of quantum solids
. Fifteen young women will also be awarded $20,000 fellowships.
