Quantum science and nanomaterials | QMat

Bundle interdisciplinary potential in the field of nanoscience and nanomaterials with real world applications on quantum properties and information technology.


The continuing miniaturization and integration of information technologies requires a better understanding and control of the constituents of matter at a very small scale, approaching a millionth of a millimeter (nanometer), which is about twenty times the size of an atom. At these extremely short scales, the quantum nature of matter becomes dominant. By exploiting typical quantum effects, such as coherence and entanglement, we can create new and innovative devices and materials that will shape the future of technology and positively impact society as a whole.
