Theory of Condensed Matter

Theoretical Condensed Matter physics is about building models of physical processes, often driven by experimental data, generalising the solutions of those models to make predictions, and transferring the concepts gained into other areas. Theory plays an important role in understanding known phenomena and in predicting new ones.

With over seventy members, TCM is the largest university Condensed Matter Theory group in the country. Able to trace its history back for over sixty years, it has been home to many leading theoreticians.


Dr Flemming, Prof Josephson, and sculpture

On 31st May, Dr Nigel Fleming came to TCM to unveil his sculpture entitled "The First Atom of the Universe II," which he dedicated to Prof Brian Josephson and donated to TCM. The sculpture is a very impressive addition to our Seminar Room, and will move with us to the new Cavendish next year.
