Condensed Matter Physics

The Condensed Matter group is currently investigating a range of topics, including unconventional superconductivity, quantum spin liquids, solid state quantum computers, superfluidity of þHe, electron transport at low temperatures, two-dimensional inversion layers in semiconductors, semiconductor physics and semiconductor device properties at low temperatures, magnetism at ultralow temperatures, electromagnetic properties of superconductors, and physics of nanoclusters. Members of the Condensed Matter group include Professors Gerd Bergmann, Gene Bickers, Hans Bozler, Christopher Gould, Stephan Haas, Rajiv Kalia, Vitaly Kresin, Grace Lu, Anupam Madhukar, Aiichiro Nakano, Richard Thompson, Priya Vashishta and Paolo Zanardi.
