Senior Fellow; Founding Program Director
Jules Carbotte is a University Professor and Professor Emeritus of theoretical condensed matter physics at McMaster University. He received his Honours B.Sc. in Physics from the University of Manitoba in 1960, and then continued his studies at McGill University, earning his M.Sc. in 1961 and his Ph.D. in Physics in 1964. From 1963-65, he worked as a Research Associate in the Physics Department of Cornell University. He accepted a position as Assistant Professor at McMaster University in 1965. He spent one year (1967-68) as an Assistant Professor at McGill University, before returning to McMaster to take a position as Associate Professor. In 1972, he was promoted to Professor, and in 1996 was honoured with the title of University Professor at McMaster. Dr. Carbotte is a Senior Fellow and the Founding Director of CIFAR's Quantum Materials Program (formerly called the Superconductivity Program).
Prof. Carbotte is interested in condensed matter theory and has worked in several fields, including positron annihilation and thermalization in metals, point defects from self consistent impurity potentials, the electron-phonon interaction and its manifestation in transport and other properties, superconductivity in conventional metals and presently in the high Tc oxides and heavy fermions.
