Research profile: experimental solid state physics

Crystal growth and low temperature physics in strongly correlated electron systems: magnetism, frustration, critical behavior, quantum phase transitions.

 

Design and discovery of new states of matter, especially quantum materials by crystal growth and characterization:

  • Exploration of magnetic ground states, whose complexity is arising due to competing interactions, e.g. in magnetically frustrated systems
  • Investigation of phase transitions and critical properties, particularly with regard to universality

 

Selected Topics

  • Unconventional Superconductivity in Iron-pnictides: EuRbFe4As4
  • Frustration and quantum criticality: CePd1−xNixAl
  • Frustration in metals: HoInCu4, HoInAg2-xAux
  • Quantum critical heavy fermion systems: CeCu6−xAux, CeCoIn5
  • Spin and orbital frustration: (Fe,Mn)Sc2S4
