Educational Background

Stephen Hill received his BA and D. Phil. degrees from the University of Oxford in 1991 and 1994, respectively.

Research Interests

Prof. Hill has nearly 20 years of experience performing microwave and far-infrared magneto-optical spectroscopy of materials in high magnetic fields, spanning the range from 0.3 to 200 cm 1 (9 GHz to 6 THz), using a wide array of compact, low-power sources and measurement techniques (cyclotron resonance, optical conductivity and electron paramagnetic resonance). Through this work, Hill has gained an international reputation in microwave-to-infrared spectroscopy of low-dimensional conducting, superconducting and magnetic systems in high magnetic fields, including significant technique development. Hill’s recent research has focused on fundamental studies of quantum phenomena in molecular magnets and correlated electron systems (quantum magnets and superconductors), as well as structure property relationships in a wide variety of molecule-based magnets, or molecular nanomagnets.

Professional Experience

From 1995 to 1997, he held a postdoctoral positions at Boston University and the FSU National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL), then took up faculty positions at Montana State University (1997 – 2001) and the University of Florida before moving back to FSU in 2008.
