Daniel Dassau

Dan Dessau, Ph.D., is a professor of physics at CU-Boulder. His research interests center around using femtosecond optics and electron spectroscopic tools for the study of the electronic structure, magnetic structure, and phase transitions of novel materials systems such as high temperature superconductors (HTSCs or cuprates) and colossal magnetoresistive oxides (CMRs or manganites). Dessau is leading research into tungsten oxide (WO3) compounds which have the potential for dramatic decreases in energy usage through applications such as "smart windows."
