Cheering up a frustrated quantum system

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.

Call for PhD applications

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:
