International Visiting Professors and Researchers

The Institute for Solid State Physics (ISSP) recognizes that international collaboration contributes to global physics community by envisioning, creating, testing and implementing new directions. ISSP seeks opportunities to expand collaboration with researchers from around the world through various programs including the International Visiting Professors Program. A new international collaboration initiative started in 2017:
