About

Joshua Folk is a physicist whose research group studies the electronic properties of nanometer- and micron-scale devices at the extremely low temperatures where electronic transport is dominated by quantum mechanical effects.

Many of their experiments focus on electron spin. Their current projects include spin current control and measurement in GaAs circuits; graphene nanoelectronics; and thermodynamic probes of the fractional quantum Hall effect.
