Welcome to QECT lab @ KAIST led by Prof. Heung-Sun Sim!

Broadly speaking, we are theoretical physicists who study exciting quantum phenomena in condensed matter systems, employing diverse analytical and numerical techniques. See Research for more details.

We are collaborating with various theory and experimental groups all over the world, including members of Center for Quantum Coherence in Condensed Matter, also led by Prof. H.-S. Sim.
