W&T3: Condensed Matter and Physical Chemistry

The scope of the Expertpanel W&T3 covers fundamental research in the (bio)physical and chemical aspects of matter and materials: theoretical and experimental determination of properties, synthesis and characterization of materials (from bulk down to nanoscale), computational models and advanced measurement techniques.

More in detail:

  • Inhomogeneous, disordered, and partially ordered systems
  • Structure, structural phase transitions, defects, mechanical properties of/ in materials & structure-property relationships
  • Physics and chemistry of surfaces and interfaces
  • Theory and characterization of low-dimensional systems
  • Magnetism, superfluidity and superconductivity
  • Electronic structure of materials
  • Photonics
  • Chemical and biophysics & physical chemistry from bulk to nanoscale
  • Polymer and soft matter physics
  • Theoretical physics and chemistry
  • Spectroscopic and microscopic techniques
