With this prestigious grant of the European Research Council, Claudia Felser and her team will study single crystals of topological materials and their physical properties. She will receive more than two million Euros over a period of five years. Using this grant, they plan to engineer this new class of quantum materials via the synthesis of high quality single crystals and tune their topological phase transitions, transport properties and surface states by the application of electric and magnetic fields and high pressure. To further boost topological science in Europe, a single crystal platform will be established within the project.
The institute sincerely congratulates Claudia Felser on this success!

Metallic materials are an essential part of everyday life since they serve in a manifold of functional tasks. The common metals are characterized by their pronounced affinity to form a broad variety of alloys and compounds. However, a remarkable exception are heavy main group metals such as bismuth which are located at the lower end of the periodic table.
