Shivaji Sondhi is a Professor of Physics at Princeton University. He is a condensed matter theorist whose research has been primarily in the subset of the field concerned with quantum many-body physics. His current interests lie in the theory of topological phases, frustrated magnetism, and the statistical mechanics of quantum computation.


Magnetism

Viewpoint: Fractional charges fly between planes

The fractional quantum Hall effect, thought to be special to two dimensions, may also flourish in three, providing a possible explanation for anomalies observed in certain 3D materials in high magnetic fields. Read More »

Viewpoint: Fractional quantum Hall effect without Landau levels

Researchers develop models that could exhibit a fractional quantum Hall effect in the absence of an external magnetic field. Read More »
