Rajiv R. P. Singh is Professor of Physics at the University of California at Davis. He received his Ph.D. in physics in 1986 from the State University of New York at Stony Brook. He was then a postdoctoral researcher at Cornell University, at the University of Maryland, and at AT&T Bell Labs in Murray Hill, New Jersey. He joined the physics faculty at the University of California at Davis in 1989. He became a fellow of the American Physical Society in 2006. His research interests include studies of quantum phases of matter and biological physics.


Does quantum mechanics play a role in critical phenomena?

Quantum interference effects can, in theory, lead to the emergence of new particles carrying exotic quantum numbers at a critical point. But how good is the evidence that this happens? Read More »
