Research Groups

Independent Research Groups at the MPSD:

James McIver
The Ultrafast Transport in Quantum Materials group investigates how charge and spin are transported in quantum materials at terahertz frequencies and on ultrafast timescales. more
Kartik Ayyer
The Computational Nanoscale Imaging group focuses on developing new methods to image nanoscale objects such as biomolecules, primarily using X-rays. more
Mariana Rossi
The Simulations from Ab Initio Approaches group is especially interested in H-bonded systems composed of organic molecules and their interfaces with inorganic systems. more
Michael Sentef
The Theoretical Description of Pump-Probe Spectroscopies in Solids group focuses on the theory and computer simulation of dynamical processes in solids under irradiation with short laser pulses. more

Research Groups:

Andrea Cavalleri
The Condensed Matter Dynamics group focuses on non-equilibrium phenomena in solids. Especially, we investigate how electronic and structural order can emerge as a result external drives, how transitions occur in solids dynamically and how energy flows into and away from a solid ... more
Philip Moll
The Microstructured Quantum Matter Group works on prototyping advanced functionalities that novel materials promise tomorrow with the actual materials available today. It is interested in quantum materials in which electrons fundamentally behave differently than in Copper or Silicon. more
Angel Rubio
The Theory group investigates the electronic and structural properties of advanced materials, nanostructures and biomolecules. more
Guido Meier
The Dynamics and Transport in Nanostructures group investigates the influence of lateral nanostructuring and of coupling effects of ferromagnetic nanostructures with experimental methods and with micromagnetic simulations. more
