Correlated Quantum Materials (CQM)

Theoretical condensed matter physics, focusing on emergent properties of quantum materials.
Correlated Quantum Materials (CQM)

The Correlated Quantum Materials (CQM) group focuses on theoretically studying emerging quantum phenomena in solid-state systems. In particular, we are highly interested in materials where electronic correlations and topology yield exotic physics such as symmetry broken states, topological excitations and ultimately emerging fractionalized particles. A central part of our research focuses on two-dimensional materials, including graphene and two-dimensional magnetic materials. In our group, we aim to provide theoretical routes to engineer exotic states of matter in twisted van der Waals systems, including twisted graphene multilayers. As specific goals, we aim to unveil potential routes to engineer unconventional superconductors, quantum spin liquids, topological states and fractionalized matter in van der Waals materials.  Besides our purely theoretical research line, we often work in collaboration with experimental groups studying quantum materials in general, and two-dimensional materials in particular.
