New materials with custom-made functionalities.
New materials with custom-made functionalities are the basis for all modern high technologies from Information Processing via energy supply to medical technology.
In the 21st century, it was discovered that the mathematical concept of topology is a fundamental key to understand states of matters. The new excellence cluster "Complexity and Topology in Quantum Materials (ct.qmat)" is aimed at understanding, controlling and applying quantum materials. ct.qmat is a joint project of the Julius- Maximilians-University Würzburg, the TU Dresden and research institutions of the DRESDEN-concept cluster.More information
Matthias Vojta, Speaker of the ct.qmat cluster
Matthias Vojta is a Professor for Theoretical Physics at the TU Dresden. He focuses on physics of interactive four-particle-systems in solids, especially quantum magnetism, superconductivity, topological states and quantum phases transitions. He is speaker of the specific research area 1143 "Correlated magnetism: From Frustration to Topology"
