Condensed Matter Physics

Condensed matter physics at Tsinghua covers a broad range of theoretical and experimental subjects that are of key importance to the development of fundamental science and practical applications. The research activities include most central topics of condensed matter physics: quantum anomalous Hall effect, topological physics, high temperature superconductivity, strongly correlated electronic materials, spintronics, low-dimensional quantum materials/devices, nano physics and applications, etc. Pioneering research works are conducted by developing state-of-the-art experimental techniques (nanoscale, ultrafast, high resolution probes) and theoretical approaches (quantum many-body physics, first-principles methods, electronic structure theory).
