N. Peter Armitage and Collin Broholm of JHU, and Prof. Bob Cava of Princeton University, have each received grants from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation to further our understanding of the ‘weirdness’ of quantum materials. The funding is provided by the The foundation’s Emergent Phenomena in Quantum Systems (EPiQS) Initiative.
The Institute for Quantum Matter is an Energy Frontier Research Center that is realizing revolutionary quantum materials and structures where quantum effects such as entanglement and coherence find collective macroscopic manifestations. We expose, understand, and control the corresponding physical properties and explore their potential for energy-related applications.
Former IQM postdoctoral fellow, Jiadong Zang, has received the 2020 International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) Young Scientist Prize. Zang, who conducted his research with Oleg Tchernyshyov during his time at IQM, won the IUPAP Young Scientist Prize “For outstanding theoretical studies of the interplay between magnetism and topology”.
