Research summary

Overview

The destruction of particles has been long associated with high-energy physics and the construction of large-scale particle accelerators. It is perhaps less well-known that in solid state physics, the destruction of particles, or more precisely quasi-particles, takes place on a regular basis in a standard laboratory environment. Quasi-particles are the fundamental excitations of a metal. They are essentially electrons whose properties have been modified, typically through interactions with the atomic lattice and/or other electrons, leading to (amongst other things) larger effective masses. Simple changes in a sample's environment (eg through changes in its temperature, dimensionality or doping ...
