A journey to the heart of the electromagnetic spectrum

Welcome to the Sherwin Group! We are located at the University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB), in the Physics Department and the interdisciplinary Institute for Terahertz Science and Technology (ITST).

Our research is in experimental condensed matter physics. In particular, we are interested in how electrons move when they are confined to very tiny semiconductor structures driven by very high frequency electromagnetic radiation. More details about what we do are contained in the research section of this site.

Before or after asking "What research are you doing?" you may have a more important question--"Why are you doing this research?" The best answer depends on whether you are a
