Summary:

The mission of the LevyLab is to explore novel phenomena in solid state systems in order to provide the physical foundation for future technologies. Their research centers around a number of intersecting areas including:

  • oxide nanoelectronics
  • experimental realizations for quantum computation
  • semiconductor and oxide spintronics
  • quantum transport
  • nanoscale superconductivity
  • nanoscale optics
  • lattice phenomena and ferroelectricity

Dr. Levy is Director of the Pittsburgh Quantum Institute, the Center for Oxide-Semiconductor Materials for Quantum Computation, a Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI) on Quantum Preservation, Simulation and Transfer in Oxide Nanostructures, and a NSF Nanoelectronics for 2020 and Beyond program, and a Class of 2015 National Security Science and Engineering Faculty Fellow (NSSEFF).
