Dynamics of Quantum matter

We explore non-equilibrium many-body dynamics in quantum systems that experience symmetry-breaking, topological, or jamming transitions. These systems encompass superconductors, charge-density wave, and magnetic materials.

Experimental Soft Matter Physics

The research is conducted within the “Light and Matter” research program. The interaction of light with matter is one of the most important fields of physics and optical processes are indispensable in many branches of modern industry.

12th Nonequilibrium Quantum Workshop

December 10 - 14, 2023 , Krvavec, Slovenia

Complex Matter Department together with the Department of Theoretical Physics of IJS are organizing 12th Nonequilibrium Quantum Workshop. The event continues the tradition of bringing together experiment and theory in an informal setting that has been extremely stimulating on previous occasions. The workshop intends to gather scientists working in the field of:

  • Ultrafast dynamics in correlated solid-state systems such as charge density wave, superconducting and magnetic systems
  • Strongly nonequilibrium transitions between thermal and nonthermal states, including long-lived metastable orders
  • Measures of ergodicity in quantum many-body systems
  • Chaotic versus integrable quantum dynamics in low-dimensional systems

The registration deadline is November 3, 2023.
