Cold quantum gases. We are interested in the BCS-BEC transition of trapped fermions and study the properties of spinor Bose-Einstein condensates.
Quantum mechanics. Central objects of the research are: theories of open quantum systems and non-standard extensions of quantum mechanics, both related to current experimental work done elsewhere; quantum information theory.
Nanophysics. Our theoretical group addresses fundamental physical problems related to nanometer scale physical objects including for example spintronic systems, fullerenes, carbon nanotubes, and graphene.
