Hi !

My name is Ludovic and I am a researcher at CNRS. I work in the Condensed Matter Theory group of the LOMA in Bordeaux. Before joining CNRS, I have worked in Okinawa (Japan), Oxford (UK), Dresden (Germany) and Lyon (France).

We are interested in what happens when electrons are not happy to live together in a crystal. More precisely, in some materials, all interactions between spins cannot be satisfied at the same time. This leads to what is called magnetic frustration and strongly hinders the system to order on long length scales. In our everyday life, it would be the same as if a cup of water would never freeze, even in the middle of Antarctica !

For scientists, frustration has opened a window to explore some of the hidden properties of matter at very low temperatures, which is where quantum mechanics rules. We spend most of our time looking through this window, trying to make sense of what we see. The absence of order often leads to persistent fluctuations, paradoxically coupled to strong magnetic correlations. These phases, called « spin liquids », can often be described rather beautifully by emergent gauge field theories, making contact with a physics usually attached to high energy. In this field, we are especially interested in emergent phenomena (quasi-particles, extended fractal structures …), topological phases, exotic phase transitions and out-of-equilibrium dynamics, to cite but a few. Our research often sits at the frontier between Condensed Matter and Statistical Physics.

Team
Rico Pohle – Ph.D student, co-supervised with Nic Shannon (based in Okinawa)

I received my diploma in experimental physics from the Dresden University of Technology (Germany) in 2012. During my diploma I studied surface properties of the unconventional pnictide superconductor LiFeAs with an Scanning Tunneling Microscope. After joining the PhD program of the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST) as one of its first students, I switched to theoretical physics and try to enlarge my understanding of thermodynamical and dynamical properties in spin liquids. Next to my studies I am very interested in martial arts, dancing and the exploration of the culture, history and spirit of the islands of Okinawa and Japan.

Open Ph.D. position


Manipulation of magnetic monopoles in spin ice

Keywords: condensed-matter theory, spin liquids, topological phases, emergent phenomena

Thanks to the funding of the Physics and Engineering Graduate School (Ecole Doctorale) of the University of Bordeaux, we have an opening for a 3-year PhD fellowship, starting in October 2018. The proposal can be dowloaded here.

Signature of a tensor gauge field as would be measured in neutron scattering experiments.
Comparison between a continuum field theory (left), simulations (middle) and a large-N approximation (right).
Taken from our work in Nature Communications (2016).

We are looking for a very motivated student, with a Master in Physics, a solid background in condensed-matter, statistical and/or theoretical physics, and an interest in simulations. The candidate is expected to be proficient in English and/or French.

To apply, please send me an email with your CV, a letter of motivation and the transcript of marks of your Master (M1 & M2). Letters of recommendations and informal inquiries are welcome. Applications will be reviewed as received, with the position remaining open until filled.
