Michael Crommie

Co-Director, Kavli Energy NanoScience Institute

Michael Crommie is a professor in the Department of Physics at UC Berkeley and a faculty senior scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. His main research interests lie in exploring the local electronic, magnetic, and mechanical properties of atomic and molecular nanostructures at surfaces. He is interested in studying how interactions between atomic-scale structures affect their microscopic behavior, and how quantum mechanical effects influence device behavior in very small structures.
