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.


Atomic and Molecular Physics

Viewpoint: In a tight spot, spin and charge separate

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. Read More »

Superconductivity

Viewpoint: Supercurrents Get Lean

Electron transport measurements on thin films reveal whether two-dimensional metals support macroscopic supercurrents. Read More »
