ERC Consolidator Grant for Philip Moll

MPSD Director Philip Moll has been awarded an ERC Consolidator Grant worth €3 million to investigate the interfaces between two regions in the same strongly correlated single-crystal material. more

New method shows topological phases

Researchers in Germany and the U.S.A. propose a new optical method to verify topological magnon phases. Writing in PRL, the team shows that the intensity of polarized laser light scattered back from a magnetic material is an indicator of topological phases. more

Why optical cavities slow down chemical reactions

An international research team led by the MPSD has found an explanation why chemical reactions are slowed down inside mirrored cavities, where molecules are forced to interact with light. Their work is a key step in understanding this experimentally observed process. more

Angel Rubio becomes member of Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences

Angel Rubio, the director of the MPSD’s Theory Department, has been elected as a member of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities (BBAW). more

Bo Yuan receives Humboldt Research Fellowship

Bo Yuan, a postdoctoral researcher in Andrea Cavalleri’s Quantum Condensed Matter Dynamics group, has been awarded a Humboldt Research Fellowship. more

Angel Rubio is Highly-Cited Researcher

Angel Rubio, the Director of the MPSD’s Theory Department and the Institute’s Managing Director, has been named as a Highly Cited Researcher 2022 by Clarivate. His papers rank in the top 1 per cent by citations in this research field. more

Chiral transport observed in an achiral crystal

An international research team led by the MPSD’s Microstructured Quantum Matter Department reports the first observation of chiral transport in a structurally achiral crystal, the Kagome superconductor CsV3Sb5. more

Members of SSU Computational Science win hackathon

A team involving three young researchers from the Scientific Support Unit Computational Science at the MPSD has won a hackathon with an Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based solution for a data platform which helps patients manage their serious chronic illness. more

Superconducting stripes produce terahertz light

Researchers from the Cavalleri group report in PNAS that superconducting ‘stripes’ in certain copper-based compounds may lead to a break in the material’s crystal symmetry, thus resulting in anomalous emission of terahertz radiation. more
