One of the holy-grail questions in condensed matter physics is how superconductivity — the property of many electrons to go into a quantum soup state that can carry electricity without losses — emerges at relatively high temperatures in certain materials, and how these temperatures could be boosted even further. Now a research team at the University of Oxford and the MPSD is reporting in Physical Review Letters that a dynamical version of superconductivity, which is generated by periodically shaking the material, is intimately tied to strong electronic correlations and geometric frustration.
Gabriel has successfully defended his Phd thesis on April 22, 2020, via Zoom videoconference. Congratulations, Gabriel!
The IMPRS-UFAST is looking for bright young minds willing to dive into research on ultrafast dynamics and imaging of matter. Application deadline is December 2nd, 2019.
For the Sentef group we are specifically looking for candidates in two areas of research:

On Wednesday, July 24, we had our 2019 group outing going on a 16-kilometer hike in 3:40h from Fischbek to Langenrehm (Rosengarten). Thanks, Mona, for the awesome suggestion! We had a great day despite the high 34-degree temperatures.
