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:

Tunable Weyl Fermions in Chiral Tellurene in High Magnetic Fields

National MagLab - September 2020 CMS science highlight Topology, screws, spin and hedgehogs are words not normally found in the same scientific article but with the discovery of Weyl fermions in thin tellurine films they actually belong together. The work in this highlight describes how Qui et. al. used the unique properties of tellurine and high magnetic fields to identify the existence of Weyl fermions in a semiconductor. This discovery opens a new window into the intriguing world to topological materials. Read more.
