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 postdoc position opened!

We are pleased to announce the opening of a new postdoc position! We are looking for an enthusiastic postdoc who will strengthen our team in research and experimental development in the framework of our ERC StG “distort-to-grasp”. The postdoc will perform experimental...

Crystal growth paper published!

Our work on the development of a new container for high-temperature solution growth of alkali-containing compounds has been published in Crystals! Growing single crystals rich in alkali-metals is a challenge that was successfully tackled by Jutta Püttmann in her...

Registration open for “Blockpraktikum 503” this September

Our compact lab course (Blockpraktikum) on experimental solid state physics will take place also this year in September, 18.9.2023-29.9.2023. The participants will grow their own single crystals from a high-temperature metallic flux and characterize their obtained...
