Condensed Matter Physics

The condensed matter physics group has a broad range of research interests and activities. These include quantum spin dynamics in nanostructures and spin dependent electron transport (see our research site for more information), non-equilibrium quantum phenomena as well as soft matter physics (see the center's web site for more information).
