In a bold move towards the advancement of science, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) proudly presents the upcoming Quantum Matters in Materials Science (QMMS) workshop. This highly anticipated event, scheduled for February 21-22, 2024, will delve into the fascinating realm of quantum phenomena in emerging materials and their potential for revolutionizing future devices.
The significance of quantum properties in materials cannot be overstated. While all materials possess quantum attributes, it is only when these phenomena manifest at the classical scale that we can truly harness their extraordinary properties for practical applications. Recognizing the immense potential of quantum materials, large-scale initiatives like the Materials Genome Initiative, the National Quantum Initiative, and the CHIPS for America Act have emerged, paving the way for extensive investigations and expedited development of quantum information systems (QIS), integrated circuits, and other industrial applications.
To achieve success in this groundbreaking domain, a symbiotic relationship between experimental and computational work is indispensable. With this goal in mind, the QMMS workshop aims to streamline the collaborative efforts of researchers in both fields, fostering synergy and maximizing the impact of their work.
Distinguished by its focus on 2D and 3D inorganic superconductors, topological materials, magnetic materials, and semiconductors, the workshop promises to explore a wide range of key topics through both theoretical and experimental lenses. Attendees will engage in discussions and investigations revolving around:
- The discovery and characterization of new superconductors, topological materials, magnetic materials, and semiconductors
- The optimization of known quantum materials for enhanced performance
- The exploration of defect-induced behaviors and transitions in quantum materials
- Applications of quantum materials in electronics, spintronics, and quantum memory
- The challenges of implementing QIS technologies on an industrial scale
- The successes and challenges of integrating next-generation materials into microchips
- The development of high-fidelity computational methods for modeling quantum materials
- The applications of quantum materials in quantum computing and simulations
To encourage active participation, a call for abstracts has been announced. Registered participants eager to share their research findings in the form of a poster presentation are invited to submit their name, affiliation, title, and abstract to daniel.wines[at]nist.gov no later than October 6, 2023.
The Quantum Matters in Materials Science workshop is poised to unlock new frontiers of knowledge and propel the scientific community towards a future where quantum materials play a transformative role. Join us as we unravel the mysteries of the quantum world and pave the way for groundbreaking advancements in materials science.
