About RCQM

Mission

Rice Center for Quantum Materials seeks to sustain and grow fundamental research of quantum materials on campus, and develop an international network in this area, with Rice at its hub. The center will incubate new research collaborations and directions by organizing scientific workshops, supporting distinguished visitors to Rice, sponsoring postdoctoral scholars and student researchers and developing international and domestic partnerships.

Focus Areas

(1) Unconventional Superconductivity
(2) Quantum Criticality
(3) Ultracold Matter
(4) Materials out of Equilibrium
(5) Materials at Low Dimensions
(6) Functional Materials for Energy
