Research at IMFP

At IFMP, we investigate novel quantum materials in various forms, ranging from bulk crystals, artificial heterostructures, thin films and nanostructures to single molecular magnets.

An important aspect is the exploration of new collective electronic phenomena that defy simple one-particle theories and require new approaches to describe many-body effects. In this sense, these phenomena lie beyond the standard model of solid-state physics. Prominent examples of this are superconducting states, complex magnetic spin textures or spin liquids, which can only be described within the framework of modern many-body theories and offer new properties and functionalities.
