Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics


Simulation, Design, and Discovery of Complex Materials

(PI: Valentino Cooper)

Understand how defects, disorder, and long-range interactions affect functionality and stability across a material’s phase diagram

Advanced Theoretical and Computational Approaches for Quantum Materials

(PI: Fernando Reboredo)

Predict novel quantum materials and to understand the impact of defects, dopants, and interfaces on the properties of quantum materials with improved first-principles-based theory and computational approaches

Theoretical Studies of Collective Phenomena

(PI: Elbio Dagotto)

Quantitative understanding of the many-body states generated in electronic models for quantum materials, involving both strong correlation and SOC, with simultaneously active spin, charge, and orbital degrees of freedom
