Nematic transitions in iron pnictide superconductors imaged with a quantum gas
The Scanning Quantum Cryogenic Atom Microscope uses an atomic Bose–Einstein condensate to measure magnetic fields emanating from solid-state samples. The quantum sensor does so with unprecedented d.c. sensitivity at micrometre resolution, from room to cryogenic temperatures
High-Gain Chemically Gated Organic Electrochemical Transistor
Organic electrochemical transistors (OECTs) have exhibited promising performance as transducers and amplifiers of low potentials due to their exceptional transconductance, enabled by the volumetric charging of organic mixed ionic/electronic conductors (OMIECs) employed as the channel material.
Mobile metallic domain walls in an all-in-all-out magnetic insulator
Magnetic domain walls are boundaries between regions with different configurations of the same magnetic order. In a magnetic insulator, where the magnetic order is tied to its bulk insulating property, it has been postulated that electrical properties are drastically different along the domain walls, where the order is inevitably disturbed.

The Materials Science and Engineering Department promotes an inclusive learning environment
It is our collective duty to educate ourselves about the historical and current inequities that cause some groups to be underrepresented and undervalued in the scientific community. We are actively working to break down socioeconomic barriers to reach talented individuals and help disadvantaged students succeed.
The Applied Physics DEI Committee aims to address issues of equity in all aspects of our department.
The committee is currently comprised of faculty, staff, postdocs, and graduate students. Some of our members work with the Physics Department’s Equity and Inclusion Committee to help address joint concerns. We always welcome new ideas!
A climate that values the contributions of and encourages participation from all groups of physicists and potential physicists.
Our vision is that our department should be a world leader not only in producing groundbreaking intellectual achievements in physics, but also in training future generations of physicists who are representative of the diversity of all populations. We envision a community where all members are supported to to do their best work.
The Geballe Laboratory for Advanced Materials (GLAM) is an independent laboratory that supports and fosters interdisciplinary
education and research on advanced materials in science and engineering. GLAM’s educational goals include undergraduate,
graduate and postdoctoral students.
Founded September 1, 1999, the Geballe Laboratory for Advanced Materials (GLAM) is an Independent Laboratory that reports to the Dean of Research. The Laboratory supports the research activities of more than 30 faculty members from the departments of Applied Physics, Chemistry, Electrical Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, and Physics.
GLAM is located in the McCullough Building on the Stanford main campus, which it shares with its partner in research, the Stanford Institute for Materials & Energy Sciences (SIMES).
