Condensed Matter Physics

Members of Condensed Matter Physics carry out world-leading research in a wide range of areas, including the structure of ordered and disordered solids, electronic properties, electron correlations in quantum materials, superconductors, spin electronics, nano-materials, quantum information processing, organic molecular crystals, photonic crystals, biological physics, molecular motors, functional membrane proteins, DNA nanostructures, nano-electronics and nano-optics.

Those interested in applying for graduate study should consult the Graduate Programme. Enquiries should be made to the Director of Graduate Studies.

Research themes

Quantum Materials

Our goal is to create and understand new quantum states of matter as well as exploit their properties for the next generation of functional devices.
