Dr James Storey
Scientist, Robinson Research Institute
Dr James Storey received his PhD in physics from Victoria University of Wellington in 2007 for his thesis entitled ‘Electronic structure and thermodynamic properties of high-temperature superconductors’.
His specialities are in the following areas.
Polycrystalline Bi-2212, Y-123, Y-124, Tl-2201 and NCCO cuprate high temperature superconductors, including oxygen isotope-substituted and magnetically grain-aligned samples.
Differential specific heat, thermopower, SQUID magnetisation, AC susceptibility, resistivity, X-ray diffraction and Raman spectroscopy.
Lattice and electronic specific heat, electronic Raman spectra, diffusion thermopower, superfluid density/penetration depth, magnetic susceptibility/NMR Knight shift, optical conductivity, quasiparticle interference, single and multiband self-consistent solutions of the BCS gap equation.
Proficient in Java, C++, Turbo Pascal and LabVIEW, familiar with QBasic, Visual Basic, Perl, Python and HTML.
Graphical user interface design, automated instrument control and data acquisition, data analysis, numerical calculations and modelling.
