The QMP group’s research focus is on the application of many-body theories to strongly correlated, low dimensional systems, with emphasis on future technologies and theoretical device design. Our interest is in systems whose physics can be engineered at the nanoscale to give a broad range of potential devices and technological applications.
Specifically we are concerned with graphene, confined quantum Hall systems, quantum dots and rings, and spin lattice models. Some of the properties and potential applications of these systems include topologically protected quantum Hall states for use in quantum computing, spin-based information storage and processing, and flat carbon electronics.
The QMP group has strong linkage to other groups, including various experimental groups on the Aalto University.
