Dr. Hyunsoo Kim's research activities focus on quantum materials research and low-temperature experiment with various techniques. His expertise includes the 0.001 precision measurement utilizing rf-techniques with the frequency ranging from MHz to GHz at the mK temperature range and high magnetic fields. He is interested in understanding fundamental physics and in the discovery of novel quasiparticles and their interactions in solid-state systems. He is also interested in the application of exotic matters such as topological phases to the new information technology that includes quantum devices and quantum computation.
Dr. Kim holds his B.S. and M.S. degrees in physics from Pusan National University in South Korea. Dr. Kim earned his Ph.D. in experimental condensed matter physics at Iowa State University in 2013. He then worked as a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Maryland-College Park. Dr. Kim is a two-time recipient of the APS Ovshinsky award as a graduate student and a junior researcher. He later worked at Maryland Quantum Materials Center as a staff scientist before he joined the faculty of Texas Tech University as a Research Assistant Professor in the fall of 2020.
