Discovering novel electronic phases with field effect transistor technology

Scheme: University Research Fellowship

Organisation: University College London

Dates: Oct 2012-Sep 2015

Value: £270,587.71

Summary: My research is centred on studying the behaviour of electrons in solid systems. Electrons form a dense, highly cooperative liquid in materials; they behave in collective manner so the properties of the system cannot be understood by reducing the problem to its component parts. Out of this complexity can come new and unexpected behaviour, for example, superconductivity at unprecedented temperature scales . Not only does this challenge our current theories of matter but it will underpin the technology of the next generation of electronic devices.
