Hi !

I’m Ludovic, a CNRS researcher working in the Condensed Matter Theory group of the LOMA in Bordeaux. Before joining CNRS, I 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.

Piyush Anand Jeena — PhD Student
Hello, I am Piyush, PhD student at LOMA-CNRS, Bordeaux working on the topic “Designing frustration: surface effects and disorder”. I am mostly interested in condensed matter theory and my majority of the motivation towards these topics is from the time when I did an internship at LPS, Paris with Prof. Anuradha Jagannathan on Disordered systems. Besides that I enjoy watching football and esports and spend my free time playing FIFA and PUBGM with my friends.

Tristan Lugan — PhD Student
Hi there, I’m Tristan. I’m a PhD student at Institut Néel in Grenoble (France), where I work under the supervision of Arnaud Ralko (Institut Néel), co-supervised by Ludovic in Bordeaux. I’m most interested in the unconventional phases of matter arising in frustrated systems. I really enjoy discovering all about those new phases of matter, such as quantum spin liquids, and studying their topological properties using a variety of numerical methods and models. I also teach at the University of Grenoble which has been since the beginning a wonderful and stimulating experience. I love being in Grenoble, the city is surrounded by mountains which makes it easy to wander around and go skiing. I also spend my spare time playing music with my friends, cooking cookies and other sweet stuff, enjoying good movies and taking it easy : )
