About us

Who are we?

Our research group (led by Prof. Richard Schmidt) is located at the Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University Heidelberg. Our research focus lies at the intersection of theoretical solid state and atomic physics. We are particularly interested in systems that feature a strong interplay of few- and many-body physics and aim to gain a deeper understanding of its significance for the dynamics, spectroscopic and transport properties of quantum matter realized in ultracold atomic gases and novel solid-state materials.
