Physics at IST Austria comprises theoretical and experimental approaches.
On the theory side, research areas include atomic, molecular, and optical physics (Lemeshko), theoretical condensed matter physics and quantum dynamics (Serbyn), mathematical physics (Erdös, Seiringer), biophysics (Tkacik), physical principles in biological systems (Hannezo), as well as soft matter theory and materials design (Goodrich).
Experimental research is carried out in the areas of fluid dynamics/turbulence (Hof), soft and complex materials (Waitukaitis), quantum thermodynamics (Modic), nanoelectronics (Katsaros), quantum integrated devices (Fink), quantum sensing with atoms and light (Hosten), condensed matter and quantum circuits (Higginbotham), condensed matter and ultrafast optics (Alpichshev), and nanoscale photonics for biology (Danzl).
