Personal profile

Quote

Physics is an experimental science; the role of a theorist is to help understand what has been achieved, what could be achieved and ideally what should be achieved.

Research profile

Michael E. Flatté holds a part-time professorship in Photonics and Semiconductor Nanophysics in the Department of Applied Physics of Eindhoven University of Technology. His focus is on quantum coherent systems, especially of the coherent evolution of small collections of individual spins in semiconductor materials. This focus extends to the single-spin level, including that achievable with individual dopant atoms in semiconductors and often how these properties can be observed with scanning tunneling microscopy. Flatté is also a Full Professor at the University of Iowa, with research interests including the coherent and correlated properties of spin systems in the solid state, carrier dynamics in semiconductor optoelectronic materials and devices, and novel spintronic devices. 

His principal research goal is to understand and predict the practical extent of quantum coherent behavior at room temperature and to explore the implications of this behavior for novel quantum sensing and realizations of quantum computation. He has proposed novel approaches for quantum operations such as teleportation, new forms of quantum sensing and novel logic devices that rely on electron spin coherence. 

Flatté is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and of the American Physical Society.

Academic background

Michael E. Flatté obtained his PhD from the University of California, Santa Barbara (USA) in 1992 (advised by Walter Kohn, Nobel Laureate in Chemistry, 1998). After one year as a postdoctoral researcher at the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics at the same university, he left for Harvard University (USAfor a 2-year postdoctoral fellowship. In 1995, Flatté joined the University of Iowa (USA) as an Assistant Professor. He became an Associate Professor in 2000accepted a full professorship in 2005 and has worked there ever since. From 2010 to 2017, Flatté was Director of the Optical Science Technology Center at the University of Iowa. Flatté has been a part-time professor at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) since 2010, focusing on photonics and semiconductor nanophysics.
