Who are we?

The Theoretical Quantum Matter group is an academic group of theoretical physicists working on various aspects of condensed matter physics, ranging from superconductivity, Dirac matter, the interplay of quantum matter and electrical, optical and mechanical phenomena to novel states of matter which can only be accessed in the quantum regime.

The group is an international assembly of people who are experts in different fields and collaborate to deliver research at the highest standard in theoretical condensed matter and material informatics.

We are a research group of NORDITA, the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics and are based in the Albanova campus in Stockholm, Sweden, in the Vasastan neighbourhood. We will soon move to brand new premises in the state-of-the-art Albano campus, in the same location.

You can read more about the main areas we’re mainly interested on the Research tab.

You can check our research highlights to get a feel of the range of topics we cover. In the drop-down menu under Research you can learn more technical aspects of what these topics entail.

Our publications are frequently updated and can be read in their preprint stage directly on our website under Publications.

Our previous group website is still live and can be acced at Dirac Materials.

What is NORDITA?

NORDITA is the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics. Its purpose is to carry out research and strengthen the Nordic collaboration within the basic areas of theoretical physics. Originally founded as the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Atomic Physics in Copenhagen, Denmark, on 1 October, 1957, it was located at the premises of the Niels Bohr Institute.



After the move to Stockholm, Sweden, in January 2007, NORDITA is hosted jointly by KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Stockholm University. Research is carried out in three of the buildings of the AlbaNova University Center just North of the Stockholm city centre.
A completely new, state-of-the-art building will host the Institution, starting in 2020.
