Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics
Dr. Clougherty's research in theoretical condensed matter physics focuses on the dynamics of quantum systems with application to electronic, magnetic, optical, structural, and thermal properties of nanoscale materials (e.g. fullerene-derived solids and carbon nanotubes). His basic research also includes: the investigation of low energy scattering of atoms and molecules from surfaces and systems with many internal degrees of freedom (quantum sticking and quantum reflection); and the development of new methods for studying quantum many-body systems, such as new extensions of density functional theory to van der Waals systems.
