Oh good, I thought it was just me...
The research of the Carroll Group can really be seen in continuity with Siegmar Roth's 4C11 group at MPI-FKF in Stuttgart, Germany. Interests and approaches overlap strongly and share in perspective. Though Dr. Roth has since retired, he, and his students remain active collaborators and friends - influencing the directions of the group at WFU. At the moment these interests are:
Interactions between low dimensional materials and light - this is for applications in sensor technology, light emitting devices and solar devices.
Layered 2D systems in Seebeck Ion Transport - applications in biomedical devices, desalination systems, and battery technologies
Development of topologically complex quantum geometries for use in information processing - with applications to quantum computing, quantum sensing, and time crystals.
Meta-structural control over Onsager Entanglement and the development of high performance, thermal/piezo/tribo scavenging technologies - with applications in wearable electronics and mobile power generation.
