My current research focuses on engineering spin systems in diamond, silicon carbide, and other wide bandgap semiconductors for quantum information, nanoscale sensing, and quantum communication applications. These spin systems, such as the nitrogen vacancy (NV) center in diamond and the divacancy complexes (VV) in silicon carbide (SiC), offer a wide variation of control techniques as well as sensitivity to local magnetic and electric fields and temperature.
Manager, Systems Assessments
Michael Wang is an Argonne National Laboratory Distinguished Fellow, Senior Scientist, and Director of the Systems Assessment Center of the Energy Systems division. He has been with Argonne since 1993. Dr. Wang’s research areas include:
- Evaluation of energy and environmental impacts of vehicle technologies, transportation fuels, and energy systems
- Assessment of the market potentials of new vehicle and fuel technologies
- Examination of transportation development trends in emerging economies
Michael Wang has led the development and applications of Argonne’s GREET (Greenhouse gases, Regulated Emissions, and Energy use in Technologies) model for life-cycle analysis of advanced vehicle technologies, transportation fuels, and other energy systems. His work in the life-cycle analysis area has been used by government agencies and industries and cited extensively in research and academic fields. As of 2019, there are more than 40,000 registered GREET users worldwide. Dr. Wang has worked closely with governmental agencies, automotive companies, energy companies, universities, research institutions, and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) in the United States, China, Brazil, Canada, Japan, and Europe to address energy and environmental issues related to the transportation sector and energy systems.
Jointly, Dr. Wang is a faculty associate in the Energy Policy Institute at the University of Chicago and a senior fellow in the Northwestern Argonne Institute of Science and Engineering of Northwestern University. He is a guest professor in China’s Shanghai Jiaotong University. He is an associate editor of Biotechnology for Biofuels and on the editorial boards of Automotive Innovation, Frontiers of Energy and Power Engineering in China, and Mitigation and Adaptation Strategies for Global Changes. He has more than 270 publications.
Ivar Martin is a condensed matter theorist in the Material Science Division.
His interests include equilibrium properties of materials, including superconductivity and magnetism, as well as nonequilibrium. Recently he has been particularly interested in the ways to create new quantum states by means of strong periodic and quasiperiodic driving.
His other interests include microscopic theory of quantum decoherence and quantum measurement, ways to implement unusual correlated states in quantum hardware, and classical nonlinear phenomena of phase and mode locking.
Martin got his undergraduate degree from the Moscow State University, and PhD from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In 1999 he went to Los Alamos National Lab, first as a postdoc and then as a staff member. He came to Argonne in 2013.
