Peter B. Littlewood

Ph.D., Cambridge, 1980.
Professor, Dept. Physics, James Franck Inst., and the College
Director, Argonne National Laboratory
Research: Theoretical physics, condensed matter physics.

Professor Littlewood's research has focused on the dynamics of collective transport; phenomenology and microscopic theory of high-temperature superconductors, transition metal oxides and other correlated electronic systems; and optical properties of highly excited semiconductors. He has applied his methods to engineering, including holographic storage, optical fibers and devices.
