Magnetic Field Induced Quantum Phases in a Tensor Network Study of Kitaev Magnets
In a recent published article in Nature Communication, a team of researchers from University of Tokyo and University of Toronto led by Prof Yong Baek Kim reported the discovery of a novel quantum ground state in theoretical models designed for the so-called Kitaev magnets in external magnetic field. more...

Professor Paramekanti and collaborators discover new octupolar magnets
Magnetic solids derive their properties from the magnetic dipole moment of the electrons in the crystal. However, when many electrons interact, they can lead to new types of ordering arising from higher-rank multipole moments. more...

A Toronto startup with roots at U of T hopes to catch the next big wave in computing
More than a dozen physicists at Xanadu have links with the Department of Physics. Some are former graduate students, undergraduate students, or postdoctoral fellows. Others are current graduate students involved in Xanadu’s research. And Professor John Sipe is one of the company’s technical advisors. more...
Feb 26, 2020 U of T Physics Professor Debra Wunch Elected as the Next Chair of the Total Carbon Column Observing Network (TCCON)
U of T Physics Professor Debra Wunch Elected as the Next Chair of the Total Carbon Column Observing Network (TCCON)
TCCON is a network of ground-based Fourier Transform Spectrometers that record the spectra of the sun in the near-infrared. Data from the spectra measure the abundance of gases such as CO2, CH4, N2O, HF, CO, H2O, and HDO in the atmosphere. more...
