Professorship for Theoretical Physics - Theory of Condensed Matter
Welcome to our website
We are glad that you have found your way to us!
Here we, the Uhrig Group, introduce ourselves. You can find information about our working group, research and teaching activities.
Our research group deals with the quantum theory of condensed matter systems. We study solid-state systems in which strong correlations prevail, so that metals become Mott insulators. Understanding their magnetic properties and elementary excitations, as measured by inelastic scattering or absorption, is our goal. Binding phenomena are particularly fascinating. Since recently, we also focus on the topological properties of electronic and magnetic excitations that lead to edge modes and are important for magnonics. Physics far from normal equilibrium is a second core theme where we tackle questions such as the following. Can open quantum systems be manipulated so that they acquire special quantum states? How can coherence be maintained which is essential for quantum information processing? Which methods of detection are suitable to detect non-equilibrium states?
