The Institute for Quantum Matter to Become an Energy Frontier Research Center

The Institute for Quantum Matter is to become an Energy Frontier Research Center. IQM will focus on the realization and understanding of new states of quantum matter: (1) Quantum Spin Liquids (2) Magnetic Weyl Semi-metals (3) Monopole Superconductors (4) Axion Insulators. IQM joins a list of 42 EFRCs that were announced today. IQM was selected at a funding level of $10.25M (total) over four years.
