Critical and extreme phenomena in Complex Systems (Advert Reference: RDF22/EE/MPEE/BENASSI)

Phase transitions are ubiquitous. They manifest themselves in Nature as catastrophic events, and their mathematical understanding underpins the description of a plethora of phenomena across a wide range of physical scales, from quantum field theory to biological chemistry, from magnetism to neural networks.

Topological insulator plasmonics

  Research Group: School of Electronic & Electrical Engineering
Topological insulators (TIs) are a new type of material that has recently been discovered. They have highly conductive surface states, while their bulk remains insulating. Read more

Hybrid superfluid-based optomechanical systems

Quantum optomechanics is an emerging and yet very active area of research in the UK and worldwide. By harnessing the coupling of light to mechanical motion, quantum optomechanics provides new opportunities to further our understanding of quantum theory and develop quantum sensing applications.
