Matthias Vojta received his Ph.D. from Dresden Technical University, Germany, in 1998. After postdoctoral positions at Yale and Augsburg and faculty appointments at Karlsruhe and Cologne, he is now Professor of Physics at Dresden. His research interests are in theoretical condensed-matter physics and include quantum phase transitions, high-temperature superconductors, heavy fermions, frustrated magnets, as well as quantum impurities and quantum dots. Currently, he is acting as a Divisional Associate Editor of Physical Review Letters.
Transport and quantum oscillations measurements in the cuprate superconductor YBa2Cu3Oy point to density-wave order as an explanation for the peculiar doping evolution of the Fermi surface. Read More »
