Research

Our group is active in three main lines of research: Iron-based superconductivity, topological phases of matter, and Dirac materials. The first line started when Iron superconductors were discovered in 2008. At present, we are focused in how the spin-orbital interplay can be a candidate for the mechanism of superconductivity and other phases such as nematicity present in the phase diagram. The second line is devoted to the study of phases of matter that are characterized by non-trivial topological invariants. We are mainly focused on electronic phases of matter but studies on bosonic systems are on the way. Finally, the line of Dirac materials started with the works done in graphene and fullerenes in 1993, and continue up to today with research of the topological semimetals synthesized in 2015.
