Quantum interference and spectroscopy

Quantum states are characterized by how they transform under the symmetries of materials, which implies strict constraints in how they interfere with each other, scatter from impurities or respond to local spectroscopic probes. We study how we can detect the symmetry and topological nature of quantum states in solid-state experiments.
