Physics of condensed matter

Department of Fundamental and Theoretical Physics

Condensed matter physics has a goal of understanding the structure and properties of all kinds of solids and liquids. It is a very broad and lively area of research, where one witnesses frequent occurrence of novel phenomena relating to exotic properties of matter in semiconductors, superconductors, magnets etc.

Due to intense research all over the world in this area, new ideas and novel materials are created. Needless to say, today condensed matter physics is one of the main pillars of high technology.

In this highly active area our current research interest concerns the fundamental aspects of condensed matter, which include (1) study of high temperature superconductivity and vortex matter phase transitions and (2) electron transport in mesoscopic systems.
