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 



Welcome to the website of Prof. Carroll and the Carroll Research Group.

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

Most of our projects today revolve around proving the Perimeter State Stabilization Conjecture and demonstrating Onsager Entanglement. Both are important ways in which materials, materials systems and the thermodynamic behaviors of materials interact with each other.

Want to meet-up sometime? Our group presents its research at these meetings...
