Group of Prof. Ana Akrap
Light Fermion spectroscopy
topological materials explored by optical spectroscopy
We are an experimental condensed matter group in the Department of Physics of the University of Fribourg.
We want to understand 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.
