General information
Name of the project: Functional quantum materials

Strategy for Scientific and Technological Development Priority Level: A

Goals and objectives

Novel materials are a key for innovation driving novel applications and technological breakthroughs. Particularly, the quantum nature of materials provides a new route towards innovative materials and devices with unprecedented properties which are a prerequisite for quantum technologies. It is indeed the quantum nature of matter which manifests in the emergence of superconductivity, magnetism, ferroelectricity and related phenomena such as quantum liquids, charge density waves, multiferroelectric and topological effects, which can bring information and energy-saving technologies to a new level. The project will identify, investigate, and tune materials whose useful properties are governed by quantum cooperative effects. These phenomena often evolve from the interplay of competing degrees of freedom so that, for the development of technologies based on quantum materials, their parameters are to be controlled which in the project will be realized by chemical substitutions as well as pressure, electric and magnetic fields.

The practical value of the study

In general, the project will yield the microscopic mechanisms governing electronic quantum ground states in solids so that technologically relevant quantum phases can be identified and tuned. The results will hence enable to exploit new functions evolving in quantum materials and open a broad field of research relevant both for fundamental and applied sciences.
