Topol0gical Matter, Time Crystals, and Quantum Information
Prof. D.L. Carroll

The Carroll research group explores the fundamental roles that dimension, topology, and symmetry play in the emergent properties of condensed matter systems. This is a natural outgrowth of our long history in nano-systems. Explorations of these "quantum materials" sometimes yield opportunities in the development of new technologies. Other times, they may simply instruct us on the deeper meanings and connections in our world. Both of these possibilities, the basic and the applied, are welcomed and embraced by the research team. Through our work, we hope to add our distinctive voice to the truly transformative science of this era. Pro Humanitate 



We are a research group of experimentalists within the Department of Physics at Wake Forest University, Winston-Salem NC. Our research labs are in the university's Nanotechnology Center, which provides excellent access to state-of-the-art equipment and expertise. 

Want to meet-up sometime have a coffee and discuss physics? Our group presents its research at these meetings...
