Department of Physics

Research group Michael Scherer

The research of our group is focused on the exploration of emergent phenomena and correlated behavior of quantum matter and quantum materials. We develop and employ modern quantum field theoretical methods to understand and predict novel effects in a broad field ranging from condensed matter to particle physics 🧑🏽‍🔬👩🏼‍🔬.

Our group has active cooperations with researchers in Canada 🇨🇦, China 🇨🇳, Denmark 🇩🇰, Great Britain 🇬🇧, the United States 🇺🇸, and throughout Germany 🇩🇪.

Furthermore, our group is a member of the Cologne-based collaborative funding initiative:
🧲 Control and Dynamics of Quantum Materials (CRC1238)

For motivated students with a strong backgorund in theoretical physics, we offer possibilites for Bachelor-, Master- or Doctoral theses 🎓. Please get in touch for more information.
