Exploring the novelty, potential and unexpected behaviors that arise from quantum interactions

The study of materials at the nanometer scale pushes the boundaries of knowledge. Through a deeper understanding of the electronic, optical, and mechanical phenomena that arise when atoms combine into novel structures and materials, new applications in energy, medicine and information science may be discovered.

Materials for Quantum

What will microelectronics look like in 15 years? The answer is not yet known but depends on the fundamental quantum materials research of today.
