Pressure-induced excitations in the out-of-plane optical response of the nodal-line semimetal ZrSiS


The anisotropic optical response of the layered, nodal-line semimetal ZrSiS was investigated for the first time by frequency-dependent reflectivity measurements for the polarization along and perpendicular to the layers. Under external pressure, two prominent excitations appear in the out-of-plane optical conductivity, which are discussed in the context of the recently proposed excitonic insulator phase in ZrSiS.

Open Position: Project for Staatsexamen (teaching post in physics) or HiWi position


Two new experiments need to be setup and tested in the physikalische Anfängerpraktikum. Also the corresponding manuals need to be prepared.


This task can be done as a project for Staatsexamen (teaching post in physics).
It is also possible to do the job as a HiWi.

Please contact Prof. Dr. Kuntscher or Fabian Meggle.
