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.

Nonequilibrium Quantum System Dynamics

P1-0040 | 1.1.2022 – 30.12.2027
Dragan D. Mihailović

Nonequilibrium quantum system dynamics (NQSD) is a research program that focuses on investigations of diverse forms of matter under nonequilibrium conditions in timescales ranging from attoseconds to hours, on length-scales ranging from microscopic and mesoscopic to macroscopic. Mesoscopic quantum phenomena occuring in the aftermath of phase transitions are of particular experimental and theoretical interest. Quantum materials exhibiting diverse charge and spin orders in 1D and 2D are a fertile controllable sandbox for fundamental physics, discovery of new phenomena and development of promising applications in the form of quantum devices. New experimental approaches range from ultrafast time-resolved tabletop experiments and time-resolved microscopy to large international facilites, and ultrafast devices.
