Research Area: Novel Electron Physics

Carmen C. Almasan received her Ph.D. in 1989 from University of South Carolina. She joined the Kent State University Physics faculty in 1995. Prior to this, she held research appointments at the University of California San Diego. Her area of research is experimental low-temperature condensed matter physics with emphasis on the study of electric transport and magnetism, and the striking effects that arise from the interplay between these two phenomena. Her research is conducted on strongly correlated electrons, such as high temperature superconductor cuprates, colossal magnetoresistance manganites and heavy fermion materials. The interest in these remarkable new materials is two-fold: their potential for technological applications, and the possibility that new mechanisms are responsible for their novel physical properties.
