David Carey is an EPSRC Advanced Research Fellow within the Large Area Electronics Group, one of the research groups in the Advanced Technology Institute in the School of Electronics and Physical Sciences at the University of Surrey.

I obtained both my primary BA (1992) and PhD (1997) degrees from the University of Dublin, Trinity College. My doctoral thesis, carried out in collaboration with Dr. Robert Barklie in the Department of Physics , concerned the study of Erbium-impurity complexes formed in silicon. A list of associated research publications can be found here.

Current Research Interests

From April 2002 I have been an EPSRC Advanced Research Fellow where my main research project involves the study of the electronic transport mechanisms and structural properties of amorphous materials and other nanostructures with the ultimate aim of using them for large area electronic applications (such as field emitting flat-panel displays or inexpensive solar-panel arrays).

Our research also includes the use of AFM and STM to look at large area amorphous materials, carbon nanotubes and polymer coatings.

I also remain interested in the study of defects in both amorphous and crystalline materials. Other research interests include the uses of group theory in spectroscopy and I am also interested computational physics, in particular using Matlab.
