New Phases of Quantum Materials in and out of Equilibrium

Neutrons and Muons Research Division, Paul Scherrer Institute
Department of Quantum Matter Physics, University of Geneva, Switzerland

In quantum materials spins may form well-defined lattices and serve as model systems to study many-body quantum states such as interacting quantum-dimer qubits, spin Luttinger-liquids, Bose glasses, or magnon Bose-Einstein condensates. Neutron, muon and photon sourcesareunique tools for high-precision studies of such phases, and of their correlations andexcitationsin as well as outofequilibrium.An overview of current frontiers in the field will be presented with special focus on recent developments in computational physics and exciting new opportunities that free electron lasers like SwissFEL and European XFEL will offer to study the time-dependence and out-of-equilibrium quantum mechanics of such systems.
