Welcome to the Sentef Lab — “Light-Matter Control of Quantum Materials” group!

Now at University of Bremen. Part of Institute of Theoretical Physics (ITP) and Bremen Center for Computational Materials Science (BCCMS).

We are a theoretical condensed matter physics research group having fun at the intersection of nonequilibrium many-body physics, quantum materials, and quantum optics. We are dedicated to open science and contribute actively to the Virtual Science Forum, a volunteer-run open-source platform for the organization of fully digital scientific events.

Interested in becoming part of our team?
Please contact sentef(at)uni-bremen(dot)de for details.

Here is a link to a recent Long Range Colloquium talk by Michael, in which you can get a flavor of what we are currently (2021) working on.

And here is the recording of a recent not-so-serious talk by Michael at the DPG Meeting 2022 in Regensburg titled “How to make a room-temperature superconductor with light?”
