Professor Physics & Astronomy
Georgia State University
Ramesh Mani completed his undergraduate and graduate education at the University of Maryland, College Park. He worked as a guest scientist at the Max-Planck-Institute in Stuttgart, Germany, where he invented and developed the "anti-Hall bar within a Hall bar" configuration, which helped to demonstrate sign reversal of the Hall effect within voids, and the possibility of dual simultaneous ordinary, integral-quantum, and fractional-quantum Hall effects in a single multiply connected specimen. From Stuttgart, he returned to the USA with a position at the University of California, Santa Barbara, before moving to Harvard University. While at Harvard, he discovered the radiation-induced zero-resistance states and associated 1/4-cycle shifted magnetoresistance oscillations in the GaAs/AlGaAs 2D electron system. He subsequently moved to Georgia State University, where he has established a Nanoscience, Low Temperature and High Magnetic Field Laboratory in order to examine low dimensional electronic systems based also on modern 2D materials such as graphene.
