AREAS OF EXPERTISE:

Physics in everyday life, condensed matter physics, high-temperature superconductors, graphene, optics

Physicist John Cerne can discuss the applications of physics in everyday life.

He can answer media questions about the physics behind a wide variety of everyday phenomena, such as static electricity, flight in birds and aircraft, athletic feats like long jumping and pole vaulting, and much more.

Cerne is an aviation enthusiast. He started a radio-controlled flying clubs in Buffalo public schools that emphasize how basic physics and advanced technology combine to make radio-controlled flight possible.

As a researcher, Cerne specializes in experimental condensed matter physics. His lab uses light to investigate the properties and technological applications of materials such as diluted magnetic semiconductors, magnetic oxides, graphene and high-temperature superconductors.
