Developing new tools and methods to study exotic properties of novel quantum materials
The field of condensed matter physics dealing with liquids and solids is focussed on the emergent properties of matter at large scales. Strongly correlated electron systems are an important class of quantum materials that exhibit exotic electronic and magnetic properties difficult to explain with the non-interacting properties of their constituents. The quantum properties of exotic materials such as semimetals and superconductors have a direct impact on the transport of electrons and heat. While most of the research regarding condensed matter has focussed on quantum ground state properties, quantum states of matter with different patterns of long-range entanglements could have important applications. The EU-funded TRANSPORT project is developing tools and protocols to study heat and electron transport in important quantum systems.
