About the Institute

Research at the 1. Physics Institute is devoted to the exploration, description and understanding of novel materials with interesting electronic, magnetic and optical properties. We focus on systems for which electronic correlations (i.e. the interaction among electrons) lead to significant effects. In a bottom-up approach, we want to tailor matter on a molecular and structural level in order to achieve the desired properties and functionalities for certain applications as a long-term goal. In order to be successful we cultivate close collaborations with colleagues from chemistry, materials sciences, experimental and theoretical physics all over the world. In this joint effort we utilize a variety of spectroscopic methods that allow us to extract relevant information, but also improve them and push their limits.

The topics include:

  • Fundamental questions such as quantum correlations in tailored matter, quantum phase transitions, superconductivity, Dirac- and Weyl-semimetals etc.
  • Low-energy electrodynamics of correlated electron systems
  • Interplay of charge, spin, orbital and structural degrees of freedom, in particular close to charge and magnetic frustration.
  • Quantum spin liquids and quantum electric dipoles in frustrated geometries
  • Ordering phenomena in low-dimensional organic conductors, in particular charge order and electronic ferroelectricity, charge-order-driven superconductivity.
  • Optical properties of metallic nanostructures.
