Short Professional Bio for Professor Carroll...

Professor Carroll is a physicist by training, with an emphasis in areas of materials physics. His research focuses primarily on the role of dimensionality in materials properties.  Specifically, collections of zero dimensional quantum dots, or one dimensional carbon nanotubes, etc. might interact with each other through fields in the higher dimensional space, leading to novel correlation properties of the collection. The correlation in such systems can be expressed in terms of their overall dimensionality and symmetry of the array. This ultimately can suggest some rather astonishing new technological advances. So in some sense Prof. Carroll’s work is a bridge between basic advances in physics and technological advances derived from those foundations.
