Eugene A. Demler

The main focus of Eugene Demler’s work has been developing general theoretical tools for understanding the effects of interactions, and establishing a common framework for understanding the physics of strongly correlated systems. Demler’s research has addressed various properties of high temperature superconductors, heavy fermion and organic superconductors, quantum Hall systems, and quantum antiferromagnets. Demler’s research interests also include mesoscopic superconductivity, magnetic and superconducting proximity effects, understanding the effect of dissipation on quantum phase transitions, and Bose-Einstein condensation of alkali atoms.
