Group of Prof. Ana Akrap
Light Fermion spectroscopy
topological materials explored by optical spectroscopy
We are a new experimental condensed matter group in the Department of Physics of the University of Fribourg.
We are interested in the charge dynamics of materials hosting light fermions, such as topological insulators or Weyl and Dirac semimetals.
We explore the materials' physics studying their optical properties under extreme conditions: high magnetic fields, low temperatures, and under high pressure.
