Condensed Matter Physics Department Photos
Research in the Department of Condensed Matter Physics concentrates on both theoretical and experimental aspects of Condensed Matter Physics, in addition to astrophysics and some topics in field theory and matrix models.

A number of experimental groups, three of which are hosted in the Braun Submicron Center for semiconductor research, perform studies in mesoscopic physics and superconductivity.

A major theoretical effort focuses on transport in one-dimensional systems, quantum dots, disordered systems and quantum Hall systems. Two other theoretical directions relate to astrophysics and aspects of large N interacting matrix models and guage fields.
