Nanostructures and Condensed Matter Research

Dr. Mario Borunda's research interest include nanostructured quantum systems and their many-body physics (quantum dots and quantum wires), spintronics, quantum transport in semiconductors and graphene, magnetic properties of nanostructures, and solid-state quantum information. He is also interest in several aspects of many-body theory (density functional theory, exact diagonalization, and configuration-interaction schemes).

Dr. Derek Meyer's group specializes in realizing novel states of matter through atomic layer engineering. We focus on systems exhibiting intriguing phenomena such as superconductivity, colossal magnetoresistance, and topological phases.

Dr. David McIlroy’s group studies the electronic, optical and growth of one-dimensional nanostructures. In addition, they study catalytic reactions at surfaces and molecular absorption. Please visit his research page for more details.

The group led by Dr. John Mintmire continues studies of single- and multi-walled nanotubes and other nanostructures using density functional theory.

Dr. Emrah Turgut’s research field is experimental condensed matter. He focuses on novel magnetic materials and electron, spin, and phonon dynamics in them. His group has expertise on growing, characterizing, fabricating functioning devices, and performing ultrabroadband spectroscopy and microscopy of these materials. His team’s overreaching goal is to create power efficient and superior computing and information storage applications using these materials.
