Research

research overview

  • We study the electronic structure and phase transitions of novel and important electronic materials. This includes high temperature superconductors, magnetoresistive materials, topological insulators, and photovoltaics, We use synchrotron radiation as well as the new techniques of laser-based ARPES (which we invented) and ultrafast time-resolved pump-probe ARPES.

Teaching

courses taught

  • PHYS 3330 - Electronics for the Physical Sciences
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018
    Introduces laboratory electronics for physical science students. Includes basic electronic instruments, dc bridge circuits, operational amplifiers, bipolar transistors, field-effect transistors, photodiodes, noise in electronic circuits, digital logic and microcontrollers. Students gain hands-on experience in designing, building and debugging circuits. Two lectures and one three hour laboratory per week. Concludes with a three-week project in which students design and build an experiment of their choice and present a seminar on the results.
  • PHYS 4610 - Physics Honors
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018 / Spring 2019 / Fall 2019
    Students are matched with a faculty member and work independently on a research topic. Typically, the honors program lasts three semesters. A senior thesis and an oral presentation of the work are required. See also PHYS 4620 and PHYS 4630. Department enforced prerequisite: mininimum 3.00 GPA. Registration by special arrangement with the Department of Physics.
