Dominik Zumbühl elected American Physical Society Fellow for 2023


We are very pleased to announce that Dominik Zumbühl was named a fellow of the American Physical Society for 2023.

The APS Fellowship Program recognizes outstanding individuals in the physics community who have contributed to advances in physics through original research, innovative applications, teaching, and leadership. Dominik Zumbühl was awarded this special recognition “For quantum transport experiments in semiconductor nanostructures at low temperatures studying coherence, spins, and spin-orbit coupling including developing and deploying laboratory instruments.“

Dominik Zumbühl received his PhD at Harvard University in 2004 on quantum coherence and spin in semiconductor quantum dots after receiving a physics diploma from ETH Zürich in 1998 and a MSc in 2000 from Stanford University. After a 2-year postdoc at MIT, he started his own group in 2006 at the University of Basel where he has been working since. He was promoted to associate professor in 2012 and to full professor in 2023. He served as Department Chair from 2015-2019 and since 2021, he is the director of the NCCR SPIN.

We congratulate him on this remarkable achievement!
