Condensed Matter Overview
Scientists in the Condensed Matter Group include both theory and experimental physicists who are on the faculty at Florida State University. They concentrate on various aspects of condensed matter physics, including studies and experiments involving magnetism, the quantum Hall effect, quantum oscillations, high-temperature superconductivity and heavy fermion systems.
Several members of the group directly support the user program and conduct fruitful collaborations with visiting scientists. Many of the scientists in this group supervise graduate students, introducing them to the professional world of research in high magnetic fields and helping to shape their careers.
The branches of the MagLab at Los Alamos and the University of Florida also maintain very active research programs and user activities in theoretical and experimental condensed matter physics with distinguished faculty at both campuses collaborating with scientists at each of the three NHMFL sites.
