Quantum Matter Theory

The research within the program for Quantum Matter Theory focuses on condensed matter where quantum mechanical effects in a very prominent way determine the properties. Current research interests span several contemporary areas in modern physics, such as unconventional superconductivity, topological matter, non-equilibrium physics, strongly correlated systems, ultracold atoms, and quantum information. Beyond a natural connection between several of these areas, a strongly unified focus of the research is the methodology, where low-energy models for complex and quantum mechanical many-body systems play a central role. While the research is naturally linked to more material specific research, the overarching focus here is on understanding the physics of matter on a conceptual and unified level.
