The Vishwanath Group - UC Berkeley, Physics.

We are a Theoretical Physics group at UC Berkeley specializing in the study of Condensed Matter Physics, which, broadly speaking, is the search for new phases of matter and ways to describe them. This wordle  gives you a picture of our current interests.

We are mainly interested in systems where strong interactions between quantum  particles (like the electrons in certain solids) lead  to qualitatively new phenomena. Such phases occur in strongly correlated electronic systems and cold atomic gases.Our interests span the fundamental theory and phenomenology of such phases, to their realization in experimentally realistic settings.
