Haddon, Robert C
Director, Center for Nanoscale Science & Engineering
- College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences
He is best known for the prediction and discovery of superconductivity in alkali-metal-doped carbon-60. His research group is currently working on the chemistry and applications of carbon nanotubes and graphene and on the synthesis and properties of neutral radical molecular conductors.
