Research Area: Condensed matter physics
Research Description: The general theme for my research is the examination of many body systems in the vicinity of zero temperature (T=0) quantum phase-transitions. More often than not, phase-transitions take place at finite temperatures as the thermal energy becomes less than a characteristic energy scale of the system. It then becomes favorable to change the symmetry and nature of the material from say a liquid to a solid as when water freezes. However several examples of quantum phase-transitions between `disordered’ and `ordered’ phases that occur at T=0 have recently emerged, and deserve attention because of the rich and unexplored properties of quantum disordered phases.
