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.

Gated INTERfaces for FAST information processing

INTERFAST | 1.5.2021 – 31.10.2024
Department of Complex matter is project partner. Head of the participating research group: Tomaž Mertelj

INTERFAST lays the foundations for a fully innovative adaptable magnetic-based computing&sensing technology, aiming at the construction of a new and competitive pillar in the race for beyond CMOS era. The technology is applied to most relevant spintronic device cases and is based on the voltage gating modulation of chemical bonding at hybridised interfaces between metallic and molecular layers. The modification of the bonding induces sizeable modification of the electronic properties at the surface of the metallic spintronic element. This unavoidably alters the most relevant solid-state parameters, among which the spin-orbit coupling. The modulation of the hybridisation is an electronic process and is accounted by ps-fs characteristic time scales, thus opening yet unexplored routes towards ultrafast information processing.
