Theodore Corcovilos

Department of Physics, Duquesne University
Ph.D., Physics, California Institute of Technology, 2008
Summary:
  • Experimental modeling of condensed matter systems using ultracold atoms, in particular building analogs to look at the microscopic behavior of junctions between different materials.
  • Quantum computing and studies of quantum information using ultracold atoms.
  • Applied infrared and UV/visible optical spectroscopy for chemical detection and analysis
  • Development of inexpensive laboratory equipment using 3D printed materials and microcontrollers (e.g. Arduino)
