BGU Physics Department()

The Condensed-Matter Theory Group ()

The condensed matter theory group at BGU conducts research in mesoscopic physics, disordered and strongly correlated systems. Of special interest are topics such as superconductivity, phase transitions, quasicrystals, liquid crystals, quantum dots, Kondo effect, persistent currents, quantum Hall effect, dephasing, dissipation and the relation to quantum chaos. The group has strong interactions with other research groups. It is also involved in multidisciplinary research in the context of the Ilse-Katz Center for Meso and Nanoscale Science and Technology.
