Computational Condensed Matter Theory Group


        
Condensed matter comprises more or less everything we see. To a very large extent, its properties result from the interplay of quantum mechanics and the Coulomb interaction between nuclei and electrons. This interplay keeps producing stunning phenomena many of which are still to be understood. To achieve this understanding is the goal we are striving at using predominantly computational means. Our current emphasis is on transport and dynamics; recent research topics include:

      

            

  Ultrafast Dynamics     Quantum Critical Phenomena     Molecular Electronics

Scholarship for Johannes Dieplinger

Congratulations: Johannes Dieplinger receives a PhD scholarship from the German Academic Scholarship Foundation! In his PhD, he investigates quantum many-body effects bridging between theoretical toy models and many-electron systems with experimental realizations. 
        

Research Highlight: Atomically resolved single-molecule triplet quenching

Led by Prof. Repp and Prof. Lupton (both UR), an experimental breakthrough has been achieved in measuring the energy transfer between a single oxygen molecule and a dye molecule. While first theoretical steps have been taken with success, a detailed understanding is yet to be worked out.

Original publication: Science 373, 452-456 (2021)

Perspective: Science 373, 392-393 (2021)

Press release available in German and in English.


Research Highlight: Topological high-harmonic generation

Together with the groups of Prof. Huber and Prof. Richter (both UR), we describe a novel generation mechanism of high harmonics in the surface state of a topological insulator.
