Constrained Quantum Matter

Less is more!
We use carefully chosen constraints to design and manipulate quantum states in solids, seeking to create new quantum materials and explore conceptual challenges from quantum information theory to non-equilibrium physics.

The research programme

We seek to design and utilize new quantum states by taking advantage of the recently developed capability to tailor electron systems in complex materials through a variety of complementary constraints, focusing on spin-momentum locking, gauge structures of interacting spin systems, and kinetic constraints.
