Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Quantum mechanics
  • Condensed matter physics
  • Electron

Robert Joseph Cava focuses on Condensed matter physics, Superconductivity, Topological insulator, Crystal structure and Crystallography. His Condensed matter physics research incorporates themes from Electron, Magnetic field, Magnetization, Quantum mechanics and Topological order. His Magnetization study incorporates themes from Perovskite, Electric field and Ferromagnetism.

As a part of the same scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Superconductivity, focusing on Magnetic susceptibility and, on occasion, Electrical resistivity and conductivity and Critical field. Robert Joseph Cava works mostly in the field of Topological insulator, limiting it down to topics relating to Electronic band structure and, in certain cases, Semimetal and Electronic structure. His work in Crystal structure addresses issues such as X-ray crystallography, which are connected to fields such as Orthorhombic crystal system.

His most cited work include:

  • Observation of a large-gap topological-insulator class with a single Dirac cone on the surface (2263 citations)
  • A topological Dirac insulator in a quantum spin Hall phase (2094 citations)
  • Discovery of intrinsic ferromagnetism in two-dimensional van der Waals crystals (1394 citations)
