Emergent phenomena in correlated quantum matter

The quantum mechanics of interacting many electron systems reflects the richness of solid-state physics. The interest lies in understanding the collective emergent and critical phenomena. This includes the notion of fractionalization with emergent new particles coupled to a gauge field. In the realm of spin systems, the deconfined phase of the aforementioned emergent theory corresponds to the so-called spin-liquid state put forward in the context of high temperature superconductivity. In our research, we will use state of the art quantum Monte Carlo simulations to investigate several systems where correlation driven collective aspects are dominant. In particular we will concentrate on chains of magnetic adatoms on metallic surfaces, coupled two channel Kondo impurities as well as the problem of hole motion in a gaped spin liquid state. This research will involve senior as well as junior researches in the Würzburg and San-Diego groups.
