Correlated Electron Systems

Light furnace (crystal systems)

Research in the Correlated Electron Systems (CES) Group at the University of Bristol focuses on trying to understand the basic physics behind a variety of unusual phenomena in metals, polymers, insulators and superconductors.

The group has developed world-leading expertise in a range of experimental probes to study the electronic structure of metals and superconductors and performs a significant number of measurements at experimental facilities overseas.

Group research

Our focus is on developing an understanding of how the interactions between electrons in solids give rise to phenomena such as high-temperature superconductivity and exotic forms of magnetism.
