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. Julius de Rojas's research group explores the rich, collective phenomena in coupled nanoscale magnetic materials and heterostructures. Their focus is on materials and composite structures useful for magnonics, magnetoelectrics, and high-anisotropy materials, with an eye towards applications in emerging technologies such as neuromorphic computing.

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.
