Our paper on “Generalized pseudopotentials for the anisotropic fractional quantum Hall effect” has recently been published in Physical Review Letters as Editors’ Suggestion. Read more about this work here. 

Dr Jiannis K. Pachos from the Theoretical Physics Group at the School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Leeds, is giving a public lecture at the Yorkshire Philosophical Society, Tempest Anderson Hall, this coming Tuesday the 14th of March at 7:30 pm. Can beautiful ideas also be useful? — Decoding...

We are happy to welcome Alexios Michailidis who is joining the group after doing his PhD at University of Nottingham. Alexios is working on many-body localisation and numerical simulations of quantum many-body systems using matrix-product states and tensor networks.

Contact: Dr. Arend G. Dijkstra (a.g.dijkstra@leeds.ac.uk) In our group, we use models to understand how molecular systems use light to function. These models are compared with state of the art optical experiments, which allow us to probe the fundamental motions of electrons and nuclei that take place on femtosecond to...

Nature Communications 7, Article number: 13194 (2016) Experimental Simulation of the Exchange of Majorana Zero Modes Majorana zero modes are an eagerly anticipated resource for quantum information processing as they offer immunity to noise, but they are difficult to create and control experimentally. In collaboration with theorists and experimentalists from...

In April 2015 Leeds University celebrated the Partnership Awards, the event that recognises the exceptional students and staff at Leeds. Among a staggering total of 1193 nominations Jiannis K. Pachos was shortlisted and finally awarded the Supervisor Award. You can read Jiannis’s nomination here.
