Andrei Slavin
Professor of Physics

Andrei Slavin, Ph.D., is professor and chair of Physics at Oakland University. Dr. Slavin is a fellow of the American Physical Society, one of the world’s preeminent organizations in the field of physics.

An APS member since 1992, Dr. Slavin specializes in the fields of magnetization dynamics; spintronics; microwave signal processing device; and theory of nonlinear spin waves. His fellowship nomination drew letters of support from several renowned scientists, including 2007 Nobel Prize winner Albert Fert and other leading researchers from around the globe. Each year, no more than one half of one percent of society members become fellows

Dr. Slavin has made immense contributions to his field. In 2006, he co-authored “Bose-Einstein condensation of quasi-equilibrium magnons at room temperature.” The article was later published in Nature, one of the most prestigious scientific journals in the world. In 2008, he published five articles in Physical Review Letters, an internationally recognized physics research journal.


Since arriving at Oakland in 1991, Dr. Slavin has built a reputation as a passionate educator and leader. In the 2008-09 academic year, with Dr. Slavin serving as chair, Oakland's Department of Physics secured more than $1.6 million in external grants, roughly 20 percent of all external grants brought to the university during that time.


Dr. Slavin teaches a wide array of courses, including Introductory Physics; Thermodynamics; Electrodynamics; Introductory Mechanics; and Mathematical Methods in Physics. He received Oakland’s Research Excellence Award in 2009.
