Research Zernike (ZIAM) Centre for Quantum Materials and Devices

About our Centre

Advances in quantum materials are in the core of the development of new devices can have revolutionizing applications in a wide variety of fields by exploiting their quantum mechanical properties to boost device functionality or develop a completely new working paradigm. Examples of applications can be found in information and communications technology, data science, and energy and sensing technologies.

In the Centre for Quantum Materials and Devices at the University of Groningen we focus our research on two directions: Quantum Materials and Quantum Devices.

In Quantum Materials we work on the fabrication of new quantum materials and heterostructures using techniques such as physical vapour deposition, pulsed laser deposition and Van der Waals assembly, and use state-of-the-art nanocharacterization techniques to study them, such as transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and scanning tunneling microscopy (STM).

In Quantum Devices we study devices which present quantum collective phenomena and use them to explore new functionalities. Examples are (unconventional) superconductivity, ensembles of optically-addressable quantum states, spin transport and magnonics, and opto-electronic devices.
