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:

National MagLab - July 2018 CMS science highlight Iron-based superconductors have been the subject of intense study since their discovery in 2008. They possess high transition temperatures (56 K) and a structure that is significantly different from the cuprate superconductors. In addition to studying the superconducting members of this family scientists also peer into the workings of their non-superconducting parent compounds to gain an understanding of why superconductivity emerges in these materials. The work by Terashima et. al. provides important insight into one of these parent materials. Read more.
