Sai Mu is an assistant professor at the University of South Carolina, with broad interests in emergent phenomena in magnetic quantum materials, disorder physics, defect physics in wide bandgap semiconductors, and quantum information science. He received his PhD from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, focusing on the first-principles study of magnetoelectric antiferromagnets for spintronic applications. After postdoctoral positions at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the University of California, Santa Barbara, he joined the University of South Carolina in 2022.


Classifying the Surface Magnetization of Antiferromagnets

Group theory and first-principles calculations combine to predict which antiferromagnets have potentially useful net surface magnetization. Read More »
