Jay Gupta

Associate Professor - Physics

Jay Gupta started as an Assistant Professor of Physics at Ohio State in 2004. His group has specialized in scanning tunneling microscope studies of the electronic, optical and magnetic properties of nano structures. One main success has been in the characterization of single-layer insulating films and their use for decoupling adsorbates from substrate electron density. His group has also established a leadership position in the nanoscale characterization and control over individual dopants in semiconductors.  Since starting at OSU, Jay has received several awards, including the NSF CAREER award and the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation Young Investigator award. Jay first learned STM techniques as a postdoctoral researcher under Don Eigler at IBM-Almaden. His research into single atom spin flip spectroscopy and molecular computation was recognized by two Research Division awards. Jay's graduate work was with David Awschalom at Univ. California-Santa Barbara and involved ultrafast optical studies of spin dynamics in semiconductor quantum dots and wells. Jay's interests at the boundary of physics and chemistry first stem from his undergraduate days, having received BSc degrees in both subjects from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
