We deal with materials whose properties are determined to a large extent by quantum mechanical effects, so-called quantum materials. Often these materials show strong correlations between the approx. 1023 electrons in a sample and have properties that are not yet known or understood. Among them are fascinating effects such as magnetism or superconductivity, which we investigate with various experimental methods.
Our goal is to understand the interaction of the correlated phases of a material with each other, with the crystal lattice and with the environment. Some research topics are properties of unconventional superconductors, the interplay of different ordered phases in correlated materials and the targeted manipulation of magnetic orders.
