Expertise

Studying the extraordinary physical properties of so-called "Quantum Materials" and exploring their potential for novel functionalities are the main emphases of our research activities. These Quantum Materials are investigated using sophisticated synthesis techniques, a broad spectrum of state-of-the-art scientific instruments, as well as tailor-made high-end methods including highest resolution spectroscopy.

 

Examples for our current research activities are:

  • unconventional superconductivity which is found at high application-relevant temperatures and magnetic fields,
  • switchable metal-insulator transitions which may also cause technologically promising, extremely large magneto-resistances,
  • magnetoelectric and spin-lattice couplings with application potential on magneto-electric data storage and magnetocaloric technology, respectively,
  • dissipationless. i.e. ballistic spin transport of bulk or surface states,
  • complex ordering phenomena of electronic degrees of freedom such as nematic order, orbital polarons, and superimposed (chiral) density waves, or
  • unusual spatial spin structures such as the skyrmion lattices with their now frequently discussed potential for new magnetic data storage.
