As a professor in strongly correlated systems I lead a research group focusing on understanding and manipulating quantum materials. Quantum materials are a category of materials where quantum effects play a dominating role that is visible also at the macroscopic level. Examples are given by magnetism, superconductivity, heavy electron systems and topological insulators. Quantum materials are at the forefront of modern condensed matter research and represent challengies in basic research as well as promises new future technologies. Our main research tool is the BALTAZAR laboratory for ultra-fast and high resolution angle resolved photoelectron spectroscopy (tr-ARPES). The research group is also active users of synchrotron light sources and free electron lasers.
