Condensed Matter (

Condensed matter physics is concerned with understanding and utilizing all types of physical properties of materials in their solid and liquid phases. Many phenomena observed in condensed matter are universal and can find analogies in other physical systems such as high-density ultracold gases. Condensed matter researchers are striving to uncover the simple yet fundamental physical principles underpinning the often complex and collective behaviour that emerges from the mutual interaction among many atoms. The importance of novel materials to present and future technologies drives a large amount of applied research in the field.
