The CPHT’s activities in condensed matter physics focus on the physics of highly correlated quantum systems and are structured along three complementary themes: i) the development of analytical and numerical methods to study these systems; (Ii) the electronic structure of materials such as  metal transition oxides and rare earth compounds related to their remarkable electronic properties; Iii) the physics of ultra-cold atoms in optical networks. The research themes are:

  • Theory of materials and quantum simulators, cold atoms, interactions, mesoscopic and optical effects, hybrid and open systems.
  • Quantum materials, correlated effects, development of methods and algorithms
  • Materials, ab-initio + DMFT, …
