Condensed Matter

Condensed matter group is one of three research groups in the Department of Physics at Shiraz University of Technology. The condensed matter field is considered one of the largest and most versatile sub-fields of study in physics, primarily due to the diversity of topics and phenomena that are available to study.

Traditionally, condensed matter physics is split into “hard” condensed matter physics, which studies quantum properties of matter, and “soft” condensed matter physics. Soft-matter physics, is a young sub-field of condensed matter physics.

The condensed matter group is involved in research in seven main areas:

  • Quantum many-body theory of systems
  • Statistical mechanics
  • Thin film
  • Semiconductor nanostructure
  • Superconductivity
  • Fluid dynamics
  • Liquid crystal
