Personal | Department
Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Pittsburgh
Ph.D., Physics, University of California, Santa Barbara, 1993

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).
