Condensed Matter Science

Scientists in the Condensed Matter Group include theory and experimental physicists on the faculty at Florida State University, where the MagLab is headquartered, who concentrate on various aspects of condensed matter physics.

These including magnetism, the quantum Hall effect, quantum oscillations, high-temperature superconductivity and heavy fermion systems. Go to our Research Areas page for a complete list of the group's research interests.

Group members directly support the user program and conduct fruitful collaborations with visiting scientists. Many supervise graduate students, introducing them to the professional world of research in high magnetic fields and helping to shape their careers.

The branches of the MagLab at Los Alamos National Laboratory and the University of Florida also maintain very active research programs and user activities in theoretical and experimental condensed matter physics. Distinguished faculty at both campuses collaborate with scientists at other MagLab sites.

Several scientists in this group run their own research labs. They include:

Crossover Between Strongly Coupled and Weakly Coupled Exciton Superfluids

National MagLab - March 2022 CMS science highlight figure Theory predicted that the transition between the superconducting and superfluid regimes should be continuous for electrons and holes in solid materials, but recent high magnetic field experiments performed by researchers from Columbia, Harvard and Brown Universities demonstrated the crossover between coupling regimes.
