Current research activities

The research in my group focuses on condensed matter in the quantum regime, i.e. at low enough temperatures that the wave-character of matter is prominent and dominates the physics.

In particular, we focus on critical phenomena, quantum transport of spin and charge, heterostructures of unconventional materials, and on the interplay between states with multiple coexisiting broken symmetries. Systems that fall into these classes are typically various novel types of superconductors, superlfuids, ferromagnets, ferroelectrics, and Bose-Einstein condensates. 

  • Superconductivity in novel materials, such as graphene, pnictides, topological superconductors,
  • Strongly correlated systems, including high-temperature superconductors.
  • Bose-Einstein condensates, multi-component condensates and  superfluids. Topological eksitations i multi-component condensates.
  • Spin- and charge-transport i lowdimensional structures of uconventional materials, particularly the combination magnetic og superconducting materials.
  • Novel types of  quantum critical phenomena.
  • Lage-scale Monte-Carlo computations of model systems of condensed matter.
