Welcome at the chair of Experimental Physics IV – Solid State Physics

We are excited about how in some materials, exotic properties emerge and can only be explained by quantum mechanics. This motivates us to search for and investigate novel materials and quantum phases, striving for an understanding of quantum materials. 


New magnet cryostat installed

The long awaited installation of our first magnet cryostat took place in the beginning of May. The installation, testing and training went perfectly smooth – a big thanks to Ricardo and the whole team for the great work! We can now reach temperatures below 2 K and...

New postdoc position opened!

We are pleased to announce the opening of a new postdoc position in the area of quantum material discovery, synthesis and characterization! We are looking for an enthusiastic postdoc who will strengthen our team with research in the field of new quantum materials and...
