Dmitri Basov

Professor, Department of Physics

Dimitri Basov works on nano-optics, developing new methods for applying strong radiation fields to materials and measuring their effects—all on the smallest length scales. 

His current research focus is on van der Waals materials like graphene and transition metal dicalcogenide, two-dimensional compounds as thin as a single layer of atoms that exhibit remarkable electronic properties. These materials could provide new means to convert waste heat into usable energy, build accurate sensors, transmit power over long distances, and serve as a basis for new kinds of quantum and classical computers.
