Abstract: Condensed Matter Physics, the largest sub-discipline of physics, is the study of the properties and physics of solid, crystalline, soft, and liquid materials and structures, which form the basis of electronic and optical technologies, and biological systems. Diverse materials are grown, fabricated, and engineered, including semiconductor quantum structures, graphene, 2D materials, superconductors, epsilon-near-zero, and topological materials. The discipline includes a wide range of sub-fields such as quantum information, nanoscience, photonics, and biophysics, and is often interdisciplinary in nature. In this talk, the research interests and activities of UI faculty at the forefront of Condensed Matter and Optical Physics’ will be presented. Some recent exciting developments in the field will also be highlighted.
