Condensed Matter

Condensed matter physics is concerned with understanding and predicting physical phenomena that occur in materials with relatively large atomic density.   The large density of atoms in these materials leads to exciting many-body effects such as superfluidity, superconductivity, metal-insulator phase transitions, and exotic forms of magnetism.  At Binghamton, students have the opportunity to explore Bose condensation in semiconducting systems, the behavior of complicated molecules such as DNA in microfluidic channels, the physics of transport phenomena in nanostructured materials, exotic forms of magnetic materials, nucleation and growth phenomena in condensed matter systems, the physics of quantum phase transitions, and the search for exotic particles in many body systems.
