Nano-Science Center > Research > Condensed Matter Physics

The researchers explore quantum effects in nanostructures, focusing on materials and devices for nanoelectronics, novel biosensors and quantum information processing.

Condensed Matter Physics is a section of the Niels Bohr Institute and comprises the Condensed Matter Theory group as well as the Center for Quantum Devices. Leader of the section is Jesper Nygård: nygard@nbi.ku.dk.

The experimental work is based on advanced nanofabrication, electrical measurements and experiments at ultralow temperatures. Devices are typically based on unconventional materials such as carbon nanotubes and semiconductor nanowires. We host a clean room with a suite of nanofabrication tools, incl. electron beam lithography and molecular beam epitaxy.
