Physicists at the University of Southampton are beginning a new research project which aims to improve our understanding of the universe and the material within it.

They also hope that their work will enable better mathematical predictions in systems as diverse as collisions at the Large Hadron Collider, to the development of room-temperature superconductors which could provide super-efficient power for electronic circuits.

The five-year programme -- entitled Holographic Methods for Strongly Coupled Systems (HoloGrav) -- is a collaboration between physicists in 13 EU countries including the University of Southampton, CERN, and Ecole Normale Supérieure in France. The teams of scientists will use their world-leading expertise in gauge/gravity duality to explore novel strongly coupled materials we currently do not understand, both in applications to particle and condensed matter physics.
