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… Continue reading Cheering up a frustrated quantum system
Gabriel has successfully defended his Phd thesis on April 22, 2020, via Zoom videoconference. Congratulations, Gabriel!
Michael is a co-organizer of a minicolloquium on “Magnetism and Correlations in 2D Materials in and out of Equilibrium” at CMD2020GEFES in Madrid, August 31 – September 4, 2020. Featuring invited talks by Efrén Navarro-Moratalla, James McIver, Dante Kennes, and Ralph Ernstorfer.
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: Cavity-to-Floquet crossover in quantum materials Floquet twistronics in 2D materials If you are interested… Continue reading Call for PhD applications
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.

Our paper is out in Nature Physics! Congratulations to Martin Claassen and everyone else for this very nice, potentially groundbreaking work! Click here for the News and Views “Twisting superconductors with light” by Ivar Martin at Nature Physics. And here for the press release.
Riku Tuovinen has been granted an Academy of Finland 3-year independent funding award starting in September 2019. In his project “Ultrafast many-body correlations in quantum transport and spectroscopy” Riku will develop and apply novel theoretical and computational methods for many-body quantum phenomena out of equilibrium. Congratulations, Riku!
Apply now for a postdoctoral position in the group.
Our paper on using vacuum fluctuations of light in a cavity to change materials properties is online.
