Dr. Hasan runs a lab in the Department of Physics at Princeton University. He is an expert in the physics of quantum matter, emergent phenomena in topological and correlated electron systems, and advanced spectroscopic imaging. His team has discovered topological-order in 3D bulk solids (topological insulators) including the single-Dirac-cone series using spin-resolved and phase-sensitive spectroscopic measurements. His experimental demonstration that topological surface states constitute a novel type of 2D electron systems on the surfaces of high spin-orbit insulating, magnetic, Kondo and superconducting materials has opened many new research opportunities in both fundamental physics and applied sciences. Dr. Hasan has received an American Competitive and Innovation Fellowship from the National Science Foundation, the David Shirley Award for Outstanding Achievement from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship. Dr. Hasan earned his PhD from Stanford University.
