Quantum materials

Research on quantum materials brings together scientists working on a variety of problems at the frontiers of physics, materials science and engineering. The properties of these systems are uniquely defined by quantum mechanical effects that remain manifest at high temperatures and macroscopic length scales.

This joint Nature Physics and Nature Materials Insight explores the physics of quantum materials, their synthesis and design, the control over their properties, and the functionality that emerges from these properties.

This Insight is produced with the support of the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and the Simons Foundation. As always, Nature Research takes sole responsibility for the editorial content.
