Collective Quantum Dynamics

Prof. Michael Knap

Research Field

The research of our group aims at a broad range of questions from condensed matter theory and bridges to quantum optics, atomic physics, and computational sciences. Interactions and correlations in condensed matter systems often manifest in striking and novel properties. These properties emerge from collective behavior of the quantum particles. Many examples can be found in nature, including superconductors, quantum magnets and superfluids. Our research address various questions in non-equilibrium quantum dynamics and transport in ultracold quantum gases, interacting light-matter systems, and correlated quantum materials.

Disordered quantum systems: Many-body localization

Disorder has a drastic influence on transport properties. In the presence of a random potential, a system of electrons can become insulating; a phenomenon known as many-body localization (MBL) that has been envisioned by the Nobel laureate Phil Anderson. However, even beyond the vanishing transport such systems have very intriguing properties. For example, many-body localization describes an exotic state of matter, in which fundamental concepts of statistical mechanics break down. In this project we will explore these exciting aspects of many-body localization.
