Condensed Matter

Our research spans a variety of modern topics in quantum materials, ranging from correlated and topological states of matter to two-dimensional materials, spintronics, magnetism at the nano-scale, and the theory of ultracold atomic gases. This group is one of two in the department that lead research centers. A close synergy between experiment and theory and strong interdisciplinary collaborations within Ohio State have led to the success of the CEM, an NSF-MRSEC, now in its second six-year cycle, and recently to a major DARPA project. This group is funded by the NSF, DOE, and DoD, and also plays major roles in multi-university block grants.
