About Richard P. Barber Jr.

Professor Barber received a B.S. degree in Physics from Davidson College in 1984. In 1990, he received a Ph.D. at the University of Maryland, College Park, where he studied superconductivity in disordered films. After graduate school, he continued this work as a post-doctoral researcher at UC San Diego, and then spent two more years as a post-doctoral fellow in oceanography studying air-sea interactions at the University of Delaware. Since coming to Santa Clara in 1995, Professor Barber has built a laboratory where has studied superconductivity and other low temperature phenomena. Currently he is collaborating with Professors McNelis in Chemistry and Biochemistry to investigate improving the stability of polymer solar cells.
