Welcome to the Analytis Laboratory! Our research focuses on the discovery and understanding of exotic materials manifesting novel quantum phenomena that have both fundamental and technological implications, particularly superconductors, exotic magnets and topological materials. Many of the physical problems we are interested in transcend a single material. Each compound can lend a new insight into a given question. Where possible, our strategy is to use materials as a tool to get to scientifically important problems by designing and tuning their properties.

Our understanding of condensed matter physics is driven by the discovery of new materials. Before the discovery of high-temperature superconductivity in the cuprates, few would have suspected that oxides would harbor such a variety of quantum properties, and before the availability of high-mobility GaAs, none predicted the spectacular properties of the fractional quantum Hall states. Our lab’s focus is to create materials with properties that push the boundaries of our understanding of condensed matter physics.
