Faculty Expert Profile

N. Peter Armitage

  • Professor


  • Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences

N. Peter Armitage is a physicist whose research centers on material systems which exhibit coherent quantum effects at low temperatures, like superconductors and "quantum" magnetism.

His lab uses various techniques to investigate complex condensed matter systems. The main interest of the group is exotic electronic states of matter at low temperatures, including exotic superconductors, novel magnetic states, electronic glasses, topological systems, and materials in proximity to quantum critical points.

Armitage's principal scientific interest is understanding how is it that large ensembles of strongly interacting, but fundamentally simple particles like electrons in solids act collectively to exhibit complex emergent quantum phenomena.

He is part of the Institute for Quantum Matter, a collaboration between Johns Hopkins and Princeton University that seeks to expose and understand materials dominated by quantum coherence and correlations.
