HU’s Newest Faculty: Seeking New Phases of Matter

Dr. Hadar SteinbergDr. Hadar Steinberg specializes in the study of physical effects which emerge in electronic systems. He integrates materials of interest, such as grapheme – a single-atom-thick sheet of carbon atoms – into electronic devices and probes them using electronic measurements at very low temperatures. Steinberg uses ground-breaking fabrication technology to mate graphene with other super-flat materials to form atomically clean interfaces. At the Hebrew University, Dr. Steinberg plans to study such exotic interfaces and seek evidence for new phases of matter.

Steinberg joined the Hebrew University’s Racah Institute of Physics and the Harvey M. Krueger Family Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology in the fall of 2013, following a four-year postdoctoral fellowship in MIT’s Department of Physics.  Steinberg is happy return to the Hebrew University as he enjoyed working with researchers "who combine academic excellence with kindness and humility".
