PHY575 Introduction to Contemporary Quantum Matter Physics

Lecturer: Prof. Dr. Marc Janoschek and Johan Chang
Lectures: 7-11 February, 10h00-14h00
Exercise Class: 9-10 February, 14h00-15h30
Start: Monday, 07.02.2022

This course provides an introduction to quantum matter phases such as superconductivity, topological and electronic nematic phases, as well as Non-Fermi-liquid and spin liquid states. Focus will be on systems with strong electronic interactions discussed from the perspective of well-understood itinerant and localized electronic limits. The course has an  experimental orientation, notably with the aim to highlight the discovery and exploration of novel phenomena. Essential experimental probes that enable progress in this field will be discussed. The level is adapted such that the course will be useful for both master and PhD students.
