Division of Condensed Matter Physics

Research within the Condensed Matter Physics group is mainly of experimental nature and directed towards the fundamental physical properties of complex and/or disordered materials such as glasses, polymers, solid ionic conductors, nano-structures, biological materials, energy related materials, high-temperature superconductors and strongly correlated electron systems. The macroscopic properties of such materials can be controlled in wide ranges using tailored molecular design. The new materials are expected to find industrial and environmental applications in fields such as information, communication, energy and clinical technology. 

The aim of the research is to understand the relationships between the microscopic interactions and the macroscopic functions of the materials and to develop new materials with special mechanical, electrical, optical or magnetic properties.
