Nature Communications (2019) . Xue-Yang Song, Yin-Chen He, Ashvin Vishwanath, and Chong Wang Reviewed in: Quantum electrodynamics in a piece of rock by John MacGreevy (UCSD) in Nature Reviews Physics (2019) "Gauge theories, such as quantum electrodynamics, are a cornerstone of high-energy particle physics. They may also describe the physics of certain unassuming materials. Recent theoretical work moves this idea closer to reality."
This wordle gives you a picture of some of our current interests which include:
(i) Weyl semimetals & topological phases with strong interactions,
(ii) unconventional quantum critical points and dualities
(iii) Moire materials
(iv) Quantum coherence in driven many body systems.
We are a Theoretical Physics group specializing in the study of Condensed Matter Physics. We seek to understand phenomena such as superconductivity and magnetism starting from fundamental physical laws like quantum mechanics. Historically, this has led to a deeper understanding of interacting quantum systems of very many particles as well as applications like the transistor, magnetic memories and magnetic resonance imaging.
