Dr. Chakhalian runs the Artificial Quantum Materials Center in the Department of Physics at the University of Arkansas.
He is an expert in growing artificial quantum materials with strongly correlated electrons and in synchrotron-based photoelectron spectroscopies. His group recently synthesized heterostructures with the interface between a high temperature superconductor and ferromagnet which exhibits novel types of states not attainable with bulk materials. Dr. Chakhalian has made important contributions to the emerging field of rational design of quantum materials with recent discoveries of orbital, magnetic and electronic reconstruction phenomena. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including the National Science Foundation Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, the John Imhoff Research Award and the Sigma Xi Research Society Award.
Dr. Chakhalian holds a PhD from the University of British Columbia in Canada.
