Astrophysics Group

The Astrophysics Group is devoted to research in astrophysics and development of astronomical instrumentation. Its scientific programs cover three major areas in astrophysics: (a) star formation and interstellar medium; (c) structure, dynamics and evolution of galaxies and (d) cosmology.

Statistical Physics and Complex Systems Group

The Statistical Physics and Complex Systems group is devoted to research in the description of emergent macroscopic phenomena from microscopic interactions in classical and quantum condensed systems. We use the methods of theoretical Physics aided by computational tools when necessary, with a special stress on numerical simulations. Research projects under active investigation within the group include: systems biology, noequilibrium statistical mechanics (both classical and quantum), open quantum systems, and neuroscience. The group also organizes the Granada Seminar on Computational and Statistical Physics, an international conference which is held in Granada every two years since 1990.

Quantum Physics and Mathematical Physics Group

The Quantum Physics and Mathematical Physics group carries out interdisciplinary research in the areas of quantum physics, atomic and molecular physics, applied mathematics, and mathematical physics. We investigate quantum systems, ultra-cold atoms, and cold and ultracold molecules, analyzing their structure, dynamics, manipulation and control by means of external electromagnetic fields. We explore the use of quantum systems in quantum information, quantum cryptography and quantum computing, and look into fundamental aspects of quantum physics. We quantify the internal disorder of many-fermion systems and physico-chemical processes by means of information-theoretical measures of entropy and complexity types. Our interests are also in developing purely mathematical tools corresponding to different branches such as approximation theory, orthogonal polynomials, numerical and asymptotic methods, special functions or information theory, and in their applications in mathematical physics, many-body physics and vision sciences.

Hadronic Physics Group

The Hadronic Physics group is focused on hadrons and Theoretical Nuclear Physics. The most significant scientific results cover: * The analysis of scattering reactions of electrons and neutrinos with nucleons and nuclei and the development of a fully relativistic formalism. * The data selection of 8000 neutron-proton and proton-proton scattering data (The Granada-2013 database) which is being used to determine nuclear forces. * The modeling and interpretation of nuclear reaction with exotic beams experiments performed at leading radioactive facilities worldwide. * The analysis of the hadronic-quark-gluon plasma phase transition and characterization of order parameters, as well as the fractal structure of Hadrons at finite temperature and non-equilibrium transport coefficients of hadrons in the hot medium.

Nanostructures, Quantum Properties and Mesoscopic Systems Group

Our research is focused on the understanding of quantum properties and critical phenomena ("phase transitions") from nuclear and molecular systems, to nanostructures based in new low dimensional materials and mesoscopic systems, with real and potential applications in the fast developing field of quantum technologies, namely the design and manufacturing of innovative nanodevices with exotic properties, a greater development of next generation electronic and spintronic, as well as for their applications in computation and information quantum theory. Our multidisciplinary group is composed by researchers coming from different areas and institutions, with distinctive scientific backgrounds (physics, mathematics and electronics), but linked by a common thread: the understanding and exploitation of quantum phenomena. Although our main contributions to the field are on basic and fundamental science, we are always committed to look for practical applications of our results. Exemplary subjects and their prospective and actual applications are: Critical Phenomena (Quantum, Shape and Topological Phases of matter), Condensed-Matter Physics (Spin, Quantum Hall systems, 2D Dirac materials, etc), Quantum Sensing and Metrology (Nitrogen-Vacancy sensors, able to detect free radicals and associate them to the presence of specific illnesses), Resistive Random Access Memories and memristor-based nanoelectronic architectures (key components for future chips in neuromorphic computing and hardware oriented applications on artificial intelligence and machine learning, "The human brain project"), etc.
