Area(s) of Expertise
- Experimental Nanophysics
Professor Heiman’s research group focuses on several challenging and technologically important areas: (1) topological materials; (2) nanomagnetism; and (3) novel spintronic materials. The group’s primary experimental tools are: molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) crystal growth; SQUID magnetrometry; electrical and optical measurements in high magnetic fields and at low temperatures. Research is in collaboration with MIT.
