Quantum Materials

Unlike conventional semiconductor materials, in which electrons can be viewed as weakly-interacting particles such that their collective behaviors can be well predicted, quantum materials on the other hand often involve various strong electronic interactions manifested as “many-body” physics problems. In this regard, the broad agenda of designing, synthesizing and characterizing quantum materials with strongly correlated behavior, in a controllable and predictable manner, poses an exciting research frontier. In our Department, we utilize state-of-the art computational and experimental apparatus to fabricate novel quantum materials, to predict their collective behavior, and to probe the various energy landscapes in the systems, with the aim to discover and to investigate exotic quantum phenomena that will have significant impact in future electronic and energy applications.
