Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Quantum mechanics
  • Electron
  • Condensed matter physics

His primary scientific interests are in Condensed matter physics, Topological insulator, Spin polarization, Magnetic semiconductor and Ferromagnetism. The various areas that he examines in his Condensed matter physics study include Magnetic field and Magnetization. Nitin Samarth has researched Topological insulator in several fields, including Thin film, Quantum spin Hall effect, Quantum Hall effect, Heterojunction and Magnetoresistance.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Spin wave and Quantum tunnelling. In his study, Antiferromagnetism, Spin structure and Magnetic circular dichroism is inextricably linked to Hall effect, which falls within the broad field of Ferromagnetism. As a part of the same scientific family, Nitin Samarth mostly works in the field of Spin engineering, focusing on Quantum spin liquid and, on occasion, Quantum technology, Quantum computer and Quantum dot.

His most cited work include:

  • Semiconductor spintronics and quantum computation (1165 citations)
  • Spin-transfer torque generated by a topological insulator (748 citations)
  • Artificial ‘spin ice’ in a geometrically frustrated lattice of nanoscale ferromagnetic islands (550 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Condensed matter physics, Topological insulator, Ferromagnetism, Magnetic semiconductor and Heterojunction are his primary areas of study. His study focuses on the intersection of Condensed matter physics and fields such as Spin polarization with connections in the field of Spin. His Topological insulator study also includes fields such as

  • Thin film which connect with Molecular beam epitaxy,
  • Quantum which intersects with area such as Quantum Hall effect.

His Magnetic semiconductor research integrates issues from Quantum well, Faraday effect and Antiferromagnetism. His research in Quantum well intersects with topics in Electron, Exciton and Atomic physics. While the research belongs to areas of Heterojunction, Nitin Samarth spends his time largely on the problem of Epitaxy, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Superlattice.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Condensed matter physics (75.50%)
  • Topological insulator (25.05%)
  • Ferromagnetism (20.15%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Condensed matter physics (75.50%)
  • Topological insulator (25.05%)
  • Quantum (7.08%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Nitin Samarth mainly investigates Condensed matter physics, Topological insulator, Quantum, Heterojunction and Magnetic field. His Condensed matter physics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Thin film, Magnetoresistance and Dirac. The study incorporates disciplines such as Optoelectronics, Molecular beam epitaxy and Angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy in addition to Thin film.
