Group Information

Davis Group research concentrates upon the fundamental physics of exotic states of electronic, magnetic, atomic and space-time quantum matter. A speciality is the development of innovative instrumentation to allow direct atomic-scale visualization or perception of the quantum many-body phenomena characteristic of these states.

Davis Group operates three suites of ultra-low vibration laboratories, one in the Kane Building at University College Cork (IE), another in Beecroft Building at Oxford University (UK), and a third in Clark Hall at Cornell University (US). Our program's other key components are at MPI CPfS Dresden, within the Max Planck Graduate Center for Quantum Materials.

Our overall objective is to exploit the distinct capabilities and facilities at all laboratories to maximize scientific efficiency. Ours is a single research group conducting scientifically harmonized studies with complementary scientific instruments at all group locations.
