From Fundamental Physics to Device Design

Our theory group explores the fundamental properties and device implications of nanoscale matter, with a particular emphasis on quantum coherent phenomena. We tackle these problems using a wide variety of theoretical techniques, ranging from ab initio approaches to low-energy effective models, and from nonequilibrium Green's functions to drift-diffusion equations.

Current Foci

  • Quantum coherent dynamics of spins in solid-state and organic materials
  • Spin-photon coupling and entanglement
  • Spin transport in semiconductors and metals
  • Carrier dynamics in narrow-gap semiconductor superlattices
  • Single-dopant properties in semiconductors
  • Quantum sensing and quantum information processing
  • Low-power coherent electronics and spintronics
