Quantum Condensed Matter Theory & Computational Physics

Symbol Laeuchli lab

Welcome to our research group!

The group of Andreas Läuchli got started in Innsbruck in March 2011 and is one of eleven research groups at the Institute for Theoretical Physics of the University of Innsbruck, Austria.

Our group is interested in the theoretical and computational exploration of correlated quantum matter in condensed matter and AMO systems. We strive to understand novel phases of matter, quantum critical phenomena and quantum systems out of equilibrium. Our research builds on a blend of concepts and ideas from condensed matter theory, statistical mechanics, quantum field theory and quantum information. We also develop and implement innovative computational algorithms in order to perform large-scale computer simulations on high-performance computers.

Currently, our research group features two PostDocs, six PhD students and four Master students.
