Division of Condensed Matter Physics
Division of Condensed Matter Physics deals with material science. The research is focused on nanoscale structure studies and connection to macroscopic physical properties. Activities include topics both in experimental and theoretical condensed matter physics.
We work with a variety of experimental techniques, ranging from scanning tunneling microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction and optical spectroscopy to synchrotron radiation, for studying physical properties of materials and material structures.
The transmission electron microscopy research group is active in broad range of projects within the field of materials physics including nanoscale structural studies and their connection to macroscopic physical properties.
Using advanced X-ray scattering techniques, we study a long range of functional and structural materials. The laboratory consists of two setups for X-ray scattering and diffraction, and one for X-ray imaging.
Studies of the physics of surfaces and interfaces by STM, electron spectroscopic and optical techniques. We work with studies of the fundamental mechanisms of magnetoresistivity at the nanometer scale and the dependence on the choice of material.
