Research interests

Lockwood has pioneered applications of inelastic light scattering spectroscopy to the study of layered compounds (University of Canterbury, 1965–1969), solvated ions (University of Waterloo, 1970–1971), structural phase transitions (University of Edinburgh, 1972–1978), magnetic excitations (Light Scattering in Magnetic Solids with Michael G. Cottam, Wiley, 1986) and semiconductor heterostructures (National Research Council of Canada, 1978–).

His latest research on the optical properties of semiconductor nanostructures (Light Emission in Silicon, Academic, 1998; Semiconductor Nanocrystals with Alexander Efros and Leonid Tsybeskov, Plenum, 2003; Silicon Photonics with Lorenzo Pavesi, Springer, 2004) has attracted wide attention.
