Jens H Bardarson

Group Leader

Research interests:

My research is mainly concerned with the observation of quantum effects and quantum driven phenomena in condensed matter systems. The two main current areas of research are quantum transport in topological insulators, and dynamics and characterization of the many-body localized phase.

Further details of the research of the group can by found here.
