Condensed Matter Experiment

  © Morgenstern group

Experimental condensed matter physics research at RWTH covers a broad range of topics mostly in solid state physics, but also biophysics and polymers.
A particular focus are new approaches to information processing such as materials for novel data storage concepts, using spins, or harnessing quantum properties. New devices, material properties and the underlying physics are studied to develop the basis of tomorrows technology.
