Condensed Matter Physics

Our condensed matter program spans a wide range of fundamental and applied phenomena, from superfluid helium, the fractional quantum Hall effect, high temperature superconductivity and quantum computation to surface science, ferroelectrics, polymers, scanning probe microscopy, clusters, nanoscale superconductivity, carbon nanostructures, spintronics and magnetic systems. The program was ranked 14th in the nation in the latest (2010) U.S. News & World Report rankings of graduate schools. We currently host an interdisciplinary National Science Foundation research center known as the Center for Nanoscale Science.
