Electronic and Quantum Magnetism Unit

a model of spins in space

The Electronic and Quantum Magnetism Unit explores fundamental issues of correlations in electrons, covering interest of both condensed matter physics and materials science. This includes topics such as competition and evolution of charge and magnetic orders, emergent phenomena and fluctuation effects, and frustration and disorder in quantum magnets. Using temperature, pressure, and magnetic field as tuning methods, and a wide range of probes both locally and at international user facilities, we explore macroscopic phenomena and their microscopic origins.
