The program focuses on interdisciplinary research of new functional materials, which exhibit manifestations of quantum phenomena, such as superconductivity, ferromagnetism, photonics etc. These interesting properties are often a consequence of the collective behaviour of elementary particles. The understanding of these interactions between the particles, which lead to such behaviour is considered as one of the most important challenges in the physics of condensed matter sciences at the turn of the century. The program is concerned with basic research into mechanisms as well as synthesis of new materials and the development of new uses of these materials, for example for quantum informatics and nano-electronics, or simply as advanced functional materials. Methods A variety of basic and advanced research methods are applied. The program represents a synergy of different types of research activities ranging from synthetic chemistry at one end, to theoretical physics at the other. The program can be divided into 4 strongly inter-connected research areas: 1. Synthesis of new materials, together with elementary chemical and structural characterisation. 2. Experimental investigations of electronic structure and charge dynamics by infrared, photo-induced, Raman and optical spectroscopies. 3. Investigation of magnetic structure and spin dynamics using linear and non-linear magnetic measurements with various techniques. 4. Advanced experiments on correlated electron systems using newly developed real-time femtosecond spectroscopy techniques. A significant effort is devoted to development of new time-domain spectroscopy techniques in correlated electron materials, which give qualitatively new information on electronic structure which is not available from traditional spectroscopy techniques. The experimental research within the group is strongly supported by theory, which is an integrated activity and is considered an extremely important aspect of the program. Materials The main emphasis within the program is on new materials whose functional properties are arising from quantum phenomena. Such materials include materials with strong electronic correlations: high-temperature superconductors and related materials, organic fullerene-based ferromagnets, carbon and chalcogenide nanotubes including other nano-particles and charge-density wave systems. An increasing emphasis is being placed on investigations of quantum phenomena in biological systems, particularly DNA and related natural or synthetic molecules
