Quantum Phenomena by emergent interactions

Understanding novel phenomena of quantum materials by exploring fundamental physical/chemical properties

Quantum materials exhibit a wide range of physical properties, ranging from high-temperature superconductivity to exotic topological states with spin polarization and enhanced electron mobility.

Understanding and governing the basic science and microscopic mechanisms responsible for the physical properties of these systems will lead to the development of novel quantum technologies and electronic devices with unprecedented properties. Shedding light on the intrinsic electronic properties of a material, both from the theoretical and experimental point of view, is the first necessary step towards the realization of desired properties in a quantum systems.

This IOM research line aims at providing fundamental understanding of the electronic states in anomalous metals and correlated oxides, in systems with reduced dimensionality and/or strong spin-orbit interaction (i.e., graphene, topological insulators, transition metal dichalcogenides)
