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.

Ultrafast dynamics at spintronic interfaces

Interfaces between organic molecular semiconductors and magnetic materials show some interstiong static properties such as molecules-nduced magnetic hardening of an adjacent ferromagnetic thin film. The research project will address ultrafast (down to picosecond timescale) magnetic and electronic dynamics of such hybrid magnetic interfaces, created by different techniques including MBE of molecules on top of magnetic materials, stacking exfoliated flakes of 2D materials to form heterostructures as well as deposition of molecules by dipping or spin-coating. The main method to assess the ultrafast dynamics will be temperature dependent ultrafast time-resolved (TR) MOKE excited either optically or via picosecond electric current pulses using a photo switch and a transmission line.
