IQM alumni, Liang Wu who is now an Assistant Professor at University of Pennsylvania, was awarded the Outstanding Young Researcher Award (Macronix Prize) by the International Organization of Chinese Physicists and Astronomers for “his pioneering experiments exploring topological materials with terahertz and nonlinear spectroscopy.” Congratulations to Liang and his former JHU mentor Peter Armitage!
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.
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.
