Laboratory for Quantum Magnetism
The Laboratory for Quantum Magnetism is part of the Institute of Physics (IPHYS) at the EPFL in Switzerland.
Our main research is on magnetic phenomena in correlated electron materials ranging from local spin clusters to novel superconductors.
We aim to combine the powerful techniques of neutron scattering at large scale facilities with in-house measurements under extreme conditions – sub-Kelvin temperatures, large magnetic ﬁelds and high pressures, complementing our measurements with theoretical simulations and predictions.
Our research also concerns insulating model systems, such as SrCu2(BO3)2 and LiREF4, as well as materials where strong electron correlations lead to emerging collective properties – e.g. magnetoresistive manganites and unconventional superconductors.
Additionally, we exploit our materials expertise and experimental capabilities to engage in cross-disciplinary research such as correlated electron-based nano-devices and technological services to the industry.
