The new
Cluster Homepage

Welcome to the new home of ct.qmat on the internet. The next weeks will deliver a plethora of new content and old pages in new design. Stay tuned and check back regularly.


Our special program to support excellent young researchers.


Foundation stone
for new institute

„A place for top research“ - „A crystallization nucleus of future shaping”: The Institute of Topological Insulators receives high praise already at the foundation stone ceremony.


Success for the
JMU Würzburg

The SFB 1170 has been evaluated very positively and is funded by the DFG with 12 Mio € for its second period.


Experimental confirmation
of new effect

Matthias Bode and his group found an indirect chiral magnetic exchange, which could lead to exotic phenomena, e.g. chiral spin-liquid states in spin ice systems or the emergence of new quasiparticles.

Welcome to the Cluster of Excellence ct.qmat - Complexity and Topology in Quantum Matter

Established in 2019, the Würzburg-Dresden Cluster ct.qmat is a leading international center for research on topological and complex quantum matter. Our aim is to develop a deep understanding of quantum phenomena in general and to identify materials in which those phenomena are observed in the laboratory. This is supported by educating and attracting top-level students and scientists as well as by supplementing infrastructure in both Würzburg and Dresden.
