The Institute for Quantum Matter at Johns Hopkins University explores the anomalous magnetic, electronic, and superconducting properties of quantum materials in bulk and thin film forms. Applications are invited for two postdoc positions specializing in the use of neutron scattering to probe quantum materials in the group of Prof. Collin Broholm. The successful candidates will […]
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!
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.
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”.
The IQM2020 annual meeting will be postponed due to evolving concerns over COVID-19 and associated changes in campus access policies. A new date for the meeting will be announced as soon as possible. In the meantime, to keep the science moving forward, we are planning an online IQM meeting on March 31, 2020. Details to […]
Check out the article about how we do science in the current version of the EFRC news-letter. It was written by Elisabeth Pogue who is a postdoc in Tyrel McQueen’s group and contains interesting perspectives from three scientists from different EFRCs including David Vanderbilt of IQM. Get in touch with Elisabeth if you have an […]
We shall start off the new year by welcoming our DOE program managers for a full day visit to IQM on January 7, 2020. There will be a set of talks highlighting recent discoveries and a tour of the IQM laboratories at JHU. Everyone is invited to attend and the talks will be livestreamed via […]
What are Quantum Materials? is a new article in the Frontiers in Energy Research Newsletter written by Elizabeth Pogue, a postdoctoral fellow in Tyrel M. McQueen’s research group.
Researchers with different Energy Frontier Research Centers share their tips for working together in the newest EFRC Newsletter.
The agenda for this year’s Advisory Committee Meeting has been posted on Google Docs.
