Professor Sergej FLACH is a condensed matter theoretical physicist. He has previously worked at the Max Planck Institute in Germany where he was an associate director and head of their visitors program for a combined 18 years. He moved to New Zealand in 2012 to undertake a professorship in theoretical physics and complex systems at Massey University. Professor Flach is a world-renowned scholar in theoretical condensed-matter physics and is considered to be one of the top researchers in his areas of expertise in nonlinear and complex systems.
Today the eyes looking for novel technologies and new generation devices focus on nano- structured materials with unprecedented electrical, mechanical, optical and other properties like graphene, nanotubes, quantum dot arrays, metamaterials, trapped atomic condensates, superconducting networks, plasmonic and nanophotonic structures. There is an increasingly strong demand for new theoretical concepts, approaches and computational tools for uncovering fundamental nonlinear and quantum many-body processes in such systems and designing efficient methods of their control.
Our center aims to take up the grand challenge and to create a world-class laboratory for the nonlinear classical and quantum dynamics of nano-structured systems, and to conduct cutting edge research on phenomena at the interfaces of applied and computational theoretical condensed matter physics and optics. We aim to cross-fertilize research on exciton-polariton condensates, superconducting networks, quantum dot networks, ultracold atomic gases, optical waveguide networks, topology, frustration, flatband physics, Fano resonant nanoscale devices, artificial gauge fields, quantum ratchets, many body localization, disorder against interactions, artificial quasicrystals, nonintegrability, deterministic chaos, Arnold diffusion, KAM, coherence and decoherence, quantum stochastic dynamics, finite systems, targeted energy transfer, transport in nano structures, nonlinear naophotonics, topological insulators, and more.
An efficient Visitors and Workshop Program will ensure finest research and training standards thus developing the center into a leading institution able to successfully compete within a quickly globalizing science network. By becoming a meeting hub for the global scientific community the center will offer to young scientists an excellent research environment and connections with the worldwide leaders in a broad variety of emerging research fields.
