Gregory A. Fiete
Gregory Fiete received his Ph.D. in physics from Harvard University in 2003. After a postdoc at the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University of California, Santa Barbara, he moved to Caltech as a Lee A. DuBridge Prize Fellow in Theoretical Physics. He is currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Texas at Austin. His research interests span a wide range of areas within condensed-matter physics, with recent topics including topological insulators, frustrated magnetism, strongly correlated one-dimensional systems, and the fractional quantum Hall effect.
Photons (bosons) confined in a hollow waveguide containing an atomic gas could show spin-charge separation, which is more commonly associated with one-dimensional fermions.
