Dr. Aaron Sternback receives Townes Fellowship for his outstanding thesis research in light matter interaction!
Dr. Aaron Sternbach receives the Townes Fellowship for his outstanding thesis research in light-matter interaction!
Townes was Chair of the Columbia Physics Department from 1952 to 1955. He received the 1964 Nobel Prize in Physics
Fabian Mooshammer received he “Bavarian Cultural Award” (Kulturpreis Bayern) sponsored by Bayernwerk AG (an electricity and gas company) and the Bavarian Ministry for Science and Art.
Our work on Fizeau drag in graphene plasmons is published on Nature with a News and Views article. See Columbia News story. Plasmon polaritons can be dragged by current flow to break the time-reversal symmetry, a finding that could lead to more efficient ways of manipulating light at the nanoscale.
D.N. Basov named the Moore Foundation Investigator in Quantum Materials 2020-25
D.N. Basov elected to the National Academy of Sciences
