Andrew Millis Theoretical physicist

Andrew Millis’ primary research interests include theoretical condensed matter physics, especially the relationship of theories of strongly correlated electrons in solids and of quantum transitions to the behavior of novel materials, including high temperature superconductors, ‘colossal’ magnetoresistance manganites, quasi-one-dimensional conductors, heavy fermion systems, and nearly magnetic systems.

He is also interested in optical conductivity as a probe of correlated electron physics; the physics governing magnetic transition temperatures in ‘half metals’; superconductivity near quantum critical points; electron-phonon coupling in correlated electron systems; effects of disorder on correlated electron and quantum critical materials; phase fluctuations and the theory of the ‘pseudogap’ in high temperature superconductors; interplay between local electronic physics and strain fields; the relation of Luttinger liquid physics to experiments on quantum wires; nonequilibrium behavior of correlated systems; and the theory of magnetic semiconductors.
