    Quantum Spin Hall Effect

    Quantum-Spin-Hall (QSH) materials are two-dimensional representatives of the family of topological insulators. They promise revolutionary device applications ("spintronics") based on dissipationless propagations of spin currents at their edges (see Fig. above).


    Accessing topological superconductivity via a combined STM and renormalization-group analysis

    The search for topological superconolactors (TSC) has recently become a key issue in conolensed matter physics, because of their possible relevance to provide a platform for Majorana bound states, non-Abelianstatistics and quantum computing.


    Exploring the World of Interacting Fermions with the Functional Renormalization Group

    When one wants to reslve the competing phases (such as the anti-ferromagnetic (AF) and superconducting (SC) phases in e.g. the High-Temperature Superconductors) one has to bridge in a controlled manner on enormous difference in energy scales:
