There aren't any official studies (that I'm currently aware of) on biphasic sleeping. If you want something to show your dad, take a look at some of the reports from people (myself included) who've actually tried this - I've got links to a few on my site
If you're going to try it over the break, set out a time period for the trial (say 30 days) and the times each day you intend to sleep (perhaps 1.5 hours in the evening, and then 4.5 hours about 5 hours later).
Let me know if you - or your dad - have any questions on this type of sleeping. It's definitely worth trying.
