Theory to discover emergent and new physics and promote the understanding of condensed matter with application to Novel Technology
Dennis Newns is a scientist with a clear research philosophy: he is motivated by fundamental understanding of new materials, novel condensed matter systems and their mechanisms. However, he also takes the next step based on this understanding to develop novel technology. In this way, he is able to study and understand new and emergent physics while providing societal impact through industrial engagement and a strong patent portfolio. He has had large center-type government funded projects. In the future he can be expected to perform high quality research that is cross-disciplinary with real applications.
In the following a few key publications and patents are listed.
