Theory of Quantum Matter (TQM)
Organisational unit: Research group
This group has moved to Tampere University.
Our research concentrates on fundamental properties of matter. Our goal is to explore, predict and design novel phases of matter where quantum mechanics play key role. We are also working with experimental people to carry out our visions. Our research philosophy is that of theoretical physics- we employ modern tools of quantum many-body theory and transport theory, though we are no strangers to numerics either. Our main efforts at the moment are focused on the theory of topological matter, including topological metals, insulators and superconductors. The field of topological matter, having rapidly achieved a central status in contemporary condensed matter physics, combines concepts across the board from solid-state theory to particle physics. Realizations of topological matter hold promise in revolutionarizing quantum information and nanoelectronics in the future.
