Condensed Matter

Main Content

Our condensed matter program spans a wide range of fundamental and applied phenomena, including 2D materials, artificially frustrated magnets, first principles calculations, many body theory, nanostructures, quantum fluids and solids, quantum information, spintronics, superconductivity, topological phases of matter, quantum information, thermoelectrics, and ultrafast optical processes. The program was ranked 14th in the nation in the latest (2014) U.S. News & World Report rankings of graduate schools. We host an interdisciplinary Materials Research Science & Engineering Center (MRSEC), known as the Center for Nanoscale Science, funded by NSF. Our faculty are also lead investigators in the 2D Crystal Crystal Consortium (2DCC), one of the two new sites of the NSF Materials Innovation Platform.  Research programs within the condensed matter group are currently funded by the Army Research Office, the Department of Energy, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the National Science Foundation, the Office of Naval Research and the Semiconductor Research Corporation.
