Condensed Matter Physics Group

Colloquially known as "Stoner Lab" after the famous theoretician E C Stoner who once headed the group, today it comprises 7 academic staff and a large number of support staff and graduate students. The Condensed Matter Physics Group’s research focus is electron and spin transport in materials and across interfaces. We are acknowledged as an international centre of excellence for the emerging technology spintronics. The group has an extensive range of state of the art in-house facilitates as well as making use of cutting-edge tools within the University and at external national and international facilities.
