Condensed Matter Physics

 

Condensed matter physics is a branch of physical science that investigates the physical, electronic and magnetic properties of the various forms of solid and liquid matter. Materials investigated range from naturally occurring crystals to engineered micro- and nanostructures as well as more exotic condensed phases and exciting phenomena such as superconductivity and the quantum Hall effect. The condensed matter physics group at UC Merced has research programs in diverse areas, including
 
  • strongly correlated systems, quantum information processing and magneto-optical phenomena (Ghosh, Chiao, Tian, Chien and Scheibner),
  • liquid crystal physics (Hirst)
  • optical properties of nanostructures (Ghosh, Scheibner, Strubbe),
  • emergence of complex phenomena when transitioning from single molecule to small ensemble studies (Xu),
  • and theoretical and computational tools for condensed-matter physics (Strubbe).
