Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Quantum mechanics
  • Electron
  • Condensed matter physics

His scientific interests lie mostly in Condensed matter physics, Spin polarization, Spins, Spin and Spintronics. His Condensed matter physics study focuses on Magnetic semiconductor in particular. His Spin polarization research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Larmor precession and Atomic physics.

His Spins research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Quantum information, Diamond and Qubit. David D. Awschalom works mostly in the field of Spin, limiting it down to concerns involving Electron and, occasionally, Angular momentum. His work deals with themes such as Spin transistor, Spin states and Spin pumping, which intersect with Spinplasmonics.

His most cited work include:

  • Spintronics: a spin-based electronics vision for the future. (8222 citations)
  • Electrical spin injection in a ferromagnetic semiconductor heterostructure (1959 citations)
  • Observation of the spin Hall effect in semiconductors. (1544 citations)
