    New fur for the quantum cat: Entanglement of many atoms in a quantum material discovered for the first time

    Be it magnets or superconductors: materials are known for their various properties. However, these properties may change spontaneously under extreme conditions. Researchers at the Technische Universität Dresden and the Technische Universität München have discovered an entirely new type of such phase transitions. They display the phenomenon of quantum entanglement involving many atoms, which previously has only been observed in the realm of few atoms. The results were recently published in the scientific journal Nature.

    Whirlwind in the material: Dresden physicist wins prize for world's first image of a 3D magnetic field

    A Dresden research team led by solid-state physicist Dr. Axel Lubk has succeeded in imaging the magnetic field of tiny magnetic nanovortices - called skyrmions - in three dimensions with a resolution of seven millionths of a millimeter. This is the first time ever that this has been achieved.

    A ‘fast lane’ for electrons

    The study of ultra-pure materials still has many ways to surprise and delight! For delafossite metals it was shown that wires sculpted from the same single crystal have very different resistivities depending on the angle at which they are cut. From the fundamental physics point of view, the laws of bulk resistivity are being broken.

    Coffee, networking and, above all, physics - ct.qmat's hybrid in-person retreat

    Highly motivated speakers, a buzz of voices in the foyer, and lively discussions about the presentations and the posters on display: More than 100 participants attended the first on-site Cluster Retreat–and the second one since the launch of the Cluster of Excellence ct.qmat–Complexity and Topology in Quantum Matter in 2019– in the placid town of Merseburg from March 23 to 25, 2022. A further 30 retreat guests joined virtually.

    Training future scientists: Teaching quantum physics through play at an early age

    The ct.qmat Cluster of Excellence has launched a new project in collaboration with the national network of STEM schools of excellence, MINT-EC. The aim is to incorporate the latest quantum physics research results into the school curriculum as quickly as possible. Drawing on the award-winning app “Kitty Q – A Quantum Adventure,” quantum physics content will be added into school curricula as early as grade 6.

    Treasure hunt, fireplace talk & research results - first reunion of the Quantum Matter Academy in Erfurt

    After the forced break due to corona, a little more than 80 early career researchers of the Cluster of Excellence ct.qmat–Complexity and Topology in Quantum Matter-have met again in person for the first time since 2019. The meeting in Erfurt was characterized by the joy of direct exchange and scientific discussions. Immediately afterwards, the first International Autumn School took place.
