Dr. Dmitri Basov
Professor of Physics
My research area is experimental condensed matter physics. In our program, we employ optical methods to investigate new physics of quantum materials. Recent instrumental advances in infrared nano-optics, some of which have been pioneered in our group, enable unprecedented access to the optical effects at the nano-scale deep below the diffraction limit of light. We exploit these instrumental innovations to explore new physical phenomena that are of technological relevance.
