Welcome to the Basov Group at Columbia
Our research area is experimental condensed matter physics. In our program, we employ optical methods to investigate new physics of quantum materials. Recent instrumental advances in infrared nano-optics, some of which have been pioneered in our group, enable unprecedented access to the optical effects at the nano-scale deep below the diffraction limit of light. We exploit these instrumental innovations to explore new physical phenomena that are of technological relevance.
Dmitri Basov is a Professor of Physics in the Department of Physics at Columbia University. His research focuses on electronic phenomena in quantum materials that he investigates using a variety of nano-optical techniques developed in his laboratory.

Columbia researchers find evidence of waveguiding in a unique quantum material, counting expectations about how metals conduct light.
Columbia will receive a $12.6 million dollar grant over the next four years to continue to continue creating programable quantum materials.
Dr. Aaron Sternback receives Townes Fellowship for his outstanding thesis research in light matter interaction!
