The properties of quantum materials are principally defined by quantum mechanical effects at macroscopic length scales. These materials exhibit phenomena and functionalities not expected or predicted from classical physics. While the field of quantum materials has been a topical area of modern materials science for decades, today it is at the center stage of technologies ranging from electronics, photonics, energy, defense, and sensing to environmental and biomedical applications, and in particular, quantum information science and technology. The May issue of MRS Bulletin presented important developments in emergent quantum materials at the intersection of materials science and condensed-matter physics.
This webinar expanded upon and complemented the articles in this MRS Bulletin issue with talks from leading experts in the field. An interactive Q&A session will follow each of the talks.
