Exceptional Research @UR
The CRC 1277 "Emergent Relativistic Effects in Condensed Matter" focuses on novel classes of materials which have been identified in the past few years and might enable a paradigm shift for future electronics. The CRC is investigating the fundamental properties of these special electronic systems and the emergent relativistic effects they entail.
Moreover, the researchers’ common aim is to explore if and how the Dirac-like band structures and strong spin-orbit coupling in novel material classes and nanostructures can be exploited for future electronic concepts and lead to new, yet unforeseen functionalities. The objective is to uncover electronic, transport, magnetic and optical properties of a variety of such materials and systems.
"Free-electron states as ultrafast probes for qubit dynamics in solid-state platforms": UR physicists aim at developing the prototype of an ultrafast transmission electron microscope that will be used to investigate the quantum dynamics of single qubits with highest spatial and temporal resolution.
"Quantum circuits with spin qubits and hybrid Josephson junctions": The project is carried out within the UR by four research groups of the Faculty of Physics and addresses cornerstones of possible future quantum computers: qubit processors and interfaces to hybrid quantum technologies.
The CRC/TRR 325 "Assembly Controlled Chemical Photocatalysis" is exploring photo-electro chemistry and represents a consortium of 15 principal investigators who run a total number of 18 collaborative projects in the field of light-induced reactions. It’s declared goal is traversing new frontiers in photocatalysis for organic synthesis by designed control of catalyst-substrate interactions.
Results of this research will enable a broader application of light-initiated chemical transformations as an essential tool for the selective and efficient synthesis of complex molecules in academic research and industrial production.
The DFG-funded Research Training Group (RTG) 2620 "Ion Pair Effects in Molecular Reactivity" strives to provide transferable concepts of ion pairs for the prediction and control of structures, reactivities and enantioselectivities.
At the same time, it focuses on excellent interdisciplinary graduate student education. So does the Doctoral Program 'Photo-Electro Catalysis' , funded by the Elite Network of Bavaria.
