We study quantum states in solid-state materials, with a special focus on magnets and superconductors. We seek to unravel the microscopic origin of their quantum behavior. To this end, we use x-ray and neutron scattering techniques, low-temperature thermodynamic and transport measurements, as well as ab initio calculations of the electronic structure.
Our group is part of the Felix Bloch Institute for Solid-State Physics within the Faculty of Physics and Earth Sciences at Leipzig University.

Last but not least, there are a few general educational lectures related to our work and to some of the current topics in quantum physics.
