Research summary

My research is concerned with several aspects of superconductivity in novel materials. Superconductivity is an area of physics with clear and substantial commercial and technological applications. However, the underlying theme of my own research is to perform experiments which illuminate our understanding of the fundamental physics of these materials. The goal is build a basic understanding which will advance our knowledge of concepts in condensed matter physics as well as building a base for the development of applications.

There are two central themes. One is to gain an understanding of the nature of the low energy excitations in novel superconductors ...

Professor Carrington was born in Solihull, England in 1968.  He began his university career by studying physics at the University of Warwick and graduated with a first class degree in 1990.  He then went on to study for a Ph.D. at the University of Cambridge, working on the (then) newly discovered high temperature cuprate superconductors.  This graduate work concentrated on studies of the normal state transport properties of these materials. He graduated with a Ph.D. in 1994, and moved to Grenoble where he held a position as a Marie-Curie fellow.  Here he continued to ...
