CMPCS  Condensed Matter Physics and Complex Systems
Mission
The Group of CondensedMatter Physics and Complex Systems aims to develop Statistical Physics, Physics of Matter, fundamental Physics and their interdisciplinary applications. The group greatly promotes the synergic use of theoretical, computational and experimental methods in order to meet the novel challenges offered by science and engineering, from lifescience to nanoscience. The group structure consists of six sections, namely:
 Statistical Physics and Interdisciplinary Applications,
 Nanophysics and Quantum Systems,
 Experimental characterization and modelling of electric, elastic, and optical properties of linear and nonlinear complex systems,
 Generalized Statistical Mechanics of Complex Systems,
 Quantum phases and dynamics of bosonic lattice systems,
 Plasma Physics and Technologies applied to Cultural Heritage.
Main targets
 Studies on applications of statistical physics methods to computational neuroscience, computational biology and biophysics
 Developments of algorithms for optimization, statistical inference and inverse problems
 Investigation of graphenebased materials for possible optoelectronic applications
 Description of quantum and interaction effects in lowdimensional fermionic systems
 Study on the interplay between spinorbit interaction and electromagnetic field and/or electronelectron interaction in electronic lowdimensional systems.
 Development of quantum optics schemes, e.g. standard and twophoton Rabi models.
 Experimental realization of elastic metamaterials based devices (e.g. acoustic diode, natural filters, …) or selfhealing systems and development of elastic models of damping and modulus nonlinearities
 Interpretation of ferroelectric response of a complex liquid
 Analyse the main mathematical properties of kappaentropy giving particular attention to its composibility law for the case of statistically independent systems. Propose the evolution equations and study their solutions for complex systems described by the kappaentropy.
 Temperature effects, entanglement properties and demixing in atomic mixture
 Dynamical phase transitions, coherence and localization properties in bosonic fluids with two components
 Understanding the dynamics of magnetically confined plasmas of thermonuclear research and interpretation of experimental phenomena observed in tokamak plasmas.
 Application of advanced geophysical methods for a complete mapping of the Valley of the Kings in Luxor, and for the search of void areas and underground structures of potential archaeological interest adjacent to the Tomb of Tutankhamun.
