Condensed Matter Theory Group

Our research focus is on mesoscopic transport, quantum correlations in superconductor - ferromagnet heterostructures, noise and full counting statistics, properties of the high-temperature superconductors, topological insulators, critical behavior and avalanches in ferromagnets, Barkhausen noise theory and experiment, kinetic models and simulations in gas discharges, critical properties of two-dimensional branched polymers, etc. For more information please visit the web pages of our group members.

NanoLab Group for Quantum, Mathematical, and Nanophysics

We focus on a development of the group-theoretical methods and their application in the physics of low-dimensional systems. We study band structure, optical conductivity, plasmon excitations, Raman spectra, mechanical properties, electric and thermal transport, spin magnetic orderings etc. of low-dimensional systems like carbon and inorganic nanotubes, helical carbon nanotubes, graphene, polymers, and DNA. We have developed a POLSym software package which can be used in polymer and nanotube research by scientists who are non-specialists in the group theory.

High-Energy Physics Theory Group

Research of our group is in quantum field theory and quantum gravity. We focus on renormalizability of field theories including models Beyond Standard Model (BSM), supersymmetric and noncommutative gauge theories, construction of noncommutative field theories and analysis of their symmetries and conservation laws, quantization of gravity, noncommutative geometry, models of noncommutative gravity, and Hawking radiation.



Center for Quantum Theoretical Physics is recognized as a Center of Excellence by the National Council for Science and Technological Development and is funded by the Ministry of Education, Science, and Technological Development. Our research is also funded through the national research projects "Superconductivity, magnetism, and fluctuation phenomena" (project No. 171027), "Low-dimensional graphite and inorganic nanostructures" (project No. 171035), and "The physical implications of a modified space-time" (project No. 171031). We participate in bilateral projects "Quantum noise and charge transfer statistics in mesoscopic conductors" (with France, 2013-2014) and "Gravitation in quantum space-time" (with Italy, 2013-2014).
We have participated in the following more recent international research projects: "Fabrication and investigation of carbon nanotube based sensors and (bio)nanocomposite materials" (SCOPES joint research project between Switzerland, Hungary, Armenia, and Serbia, 2010-2013), "Molecular beam epitaxy and nano-structuring of perovskite oxide materials toward an understanding of strongly correlated systems" (US DOE project with BNL, 2006-2013), "Topological states and phases in electron systems" (bilateral project with France, 2011-2013), "Theoretical and Raman / photoluminescence based experimental investigations of graphene, graphene nanoribbons and carbon nanotubes" (DAAD project with Germany, 2011-2012), "Modified models of gravity and the accelerating universe" (bilateral project with Croatia, 2010-2011), "NANOLABFOR - Reinforcing nanostructure laboratory" (FP6 project, 2006-2009).
