Scope

In quantum materials, strong interactions between particles and quantum entanglement lead to the emergence of exotic phenomena such as high temperature superconductivity. Materials with such effects are either in the bulk form or with reduced dimensionality. Research in this area seeks to develop materials with unusual electronic, magnetic and optical properties, characterize such properties with spectroscopy techniques, understand the properties using many-body theory, and explore the materials functionality in energy and information technology. At the present time, RCQM involves nearly 20 faculty from both Natural Sciences and Engineering Schools.
