  • Finally, in early 1987 the news of the new "high-Tc" cuprate superconductors galvanized the world of many-body quantum physics, and led many of us to reexamine older ideas and dig for new ones.

    Philip W. Anderson - Autobiography

  • Mr.P. went out to the extreme end of the bowsprit and gazed down into the deep blue sea, wondering whether its color was really due to excess of salt, or the presence of cuprate of ammonia.
