Dr. Halyna Hodovanets

Assistant Professor




Experimental Condensed Matter Physics

Research Interests:

Synthesis and discovery, characterization, and optimization of novel quantum materials (e.g. Weyl semimetals, superconductors, antiferro- and ferromagnets, magnetocaloric and thermoelectric materials) in a single crystalline form. Exotic electronic and quantum states of matter that are realized in quantum materials and can be tuned with chemical substitution, magnetic field, or application of pressure. Quantum criticality and strongly correlated systems.
