Quantum Matter group

The Quantum Matter Group studies matter under extreme conditions, i.e., at very low temperatures, high magnetic fields and high pressure using advanced experimental techniques. The goal of this research is to understand new forms of magnetism and superconductivity and to find electrically conducting materials with new physical properties not described within the standard models of solid state physics.

QM Seminars Lent term

12 February 2024

The QM seminar series has picked up this term, with Clifford Hicks (Birmingham) giving a very interesting survey of recent developments in Sr 2 RuO 4 in January, followed last week by Tamaghna Hazra (KIT Karlsruhe), who talked about upper limits on T c imposed by phase fluctuations. Coming up: Alix McCollam (Cork) on 22...

UTe2 Fermi surface paper published in Nature Communications

5 January 2024

A collaboration led by Research Fellow Dr. Alex Eaton is making rapid progress with resolving the Fermi surface and carrier mass in the unconventional superconductor UTe2, providing key input to any comprehensive theoretical description. Results from a series of quantum oscillation measurements have now been published in...

Stephen Hodgson PhD

8 October 2023

Stephen Hodgson passed his PhD viva with minor corrections last week and was celebrated by a group outing on Friday - congratulations! We thank his examiners - external, Prof. Stefan Süllow (Brunswick/Germany) and Dr. Michael Sutherland (QM, Cavendish). Stephen brought high pressure heat capacity techniques to our group...
