Professor David L. Carroll


Professor Carroll is a physicist by training with a primary interest in the fundamental symmetries of electronic materials. His research focuses on the synthesis and properties of exotic “quantum materials,” spanning conducting polymers, 2D dichalcogenides, perovskites, nanotubes, and non-equilibrium systems such as time crystals. In a spatially restricted, low-dimensional form, these systems combine local topological symmetries and global boundary conditions of material objects to yield unique, emergent quantum cooperative signatures that may soon form the very heart of future quantum information processing.  

Since many of these materials are also of great technological importance, it isn’t surprising that a significant portion of Prof. Carroll’s work also involves approaches to technologies such as LEDs, OLEDs, OPV, TEGs, Organic lasers, biological sensors, and more. Most recently Prof. Carroll’s group has patented and published in areas of: high-efficiency thermal plus kinetic power scavenging using Onsager coupled heat baths, Ultra-high efficiency field induced polymer electroluminescent lamps (FIPELs), thermal/solar power collectors based on hybrid Sterling engines (HySterE), and high efficiency, high brightness perovskite LEDs with exceptional  lifetimes.
