Research group in
Condensed Matter Physics

Broadly speaking, research at the WK Lab targets quantum states of matter. These most often arise in materials at low temperatures, and involve the intricate quantum behavior of many electrons. Ultra cold atomic gases constitute another rapidly evolving platform to study quantum matter. Some examples of quantum states that we study: quantum magnets, topological insulators, Dirac and Weyl semimetals, superconductors, etc.
