2023 Frank Verbrugge Memorial Lecture
David Goldhaber-Gordon earned his AB in Physics and AM in History of Science from Harvard in 1994, and his Ph.D. in Physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1999, as a Hertz Fellow. During his Ph.D., David made the first demonstration of the Kondo effect in a semiconductor nanostructure. The Kondo effect is the interaction of a magnetic impurity atom with a surrounding metal host, and David's contribution enabled study of this classic system in a new and more tunable context, spurring a world-wide renaissance in this area.Following his Ph.D. he spent two years as a Junior Fellow in the Harvard Society of Fellows, then joined the faculty at Stanford University.
