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

New excitons with hybrid dimensionality

Excitons whose electrons have a 1D character while the holes display 2D characteristics have been produced in layered SiP2 for the first time. The study by experimentalists at two Chinese Universities and theoreticians at the MPSD has appeared in Nature Materials. more

Ultrafast control of quantum materials

Research team involving experimentalists and theorists explores how light can fundamentally alter the properties of solids - and how to harness these phenomena in laser-driven materials for future applications. Their colloquium has been published in Reviews of Modern Physics. more

Twisted MoS<sub>2</sub> yields new exotic states

Twister bilayer MoS2 can be used to control kinetic energy scales in solids. Researchers have shown that the electrons in MoS2 can interfere destructively, stopping their motion for certain paths. Combined with the twist this makes it possible to engineer exotic magnetic states. more

Nematicity by magnetism in TBG

Researchers in Hamburg and Aachen suggest a surprising connection between the nematic behavior of a superconductor in a magnetic field — a state that resembles liquid crystals used in LCDs — and its spiral-like groundstate in the absence of the field. more
