  • Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics



  • During his career Associate Professor Andy Martin has worked on a diverse range of topics within theoretical condensed matter physics, from the investigation of superconductivity, dephasing effects and charge fluctuations in mesoscopic devices to modelling interfaces and disorder in high temperature superconductors and the breakdown of the integer quantum Hall effect. Since 2004, research has primarily focused on the properties of ultra-cold quantum gases, with additional work on the use of nitrogen-vacancy centres in diamond to measure rotation through the accumulation of topological phases; the investigation of new strongly correlated states of light in coupled atom cavity systems and the emergence of defects in early universe dynamics.

Supervision Statement

  • I currently have theoretical projects in the following areas:
    1) the dynamical properties of dilute gas Bose-Einstein condensates
    2) the investigation of the quantum properties of defects in diamond
    3) the study of coupled atom cavity systems
    4) the investigation of of strongly interacting ultra-cold Fermi gases
    These projects areas use a combination of analytical and numerical methods to elucidate the fundamental properties of these systems.
