QMMC Project

The Quantum Matter and Materials Center will bundle NUMs efforts in materials research. It underlines the importance of material science as a core mission for PSI. We will built a state-of-the-art  research  infrastructure  for  our  material-synthesis and characterisation. It will be an important component to maintain competitive research centred around the large-scale facilities SμS and SINQ.

Within the project we will create a work environment that fuels scientific exchange and provides an atmosphere where new scientific ideas can sprout.  The  QMMC  will  include  an  ultralow-noise  laboratory  to  provide  the  ideal  environment  to  study  quantum phenomena under extreme conditions and novel materials for quantum devices.

These capabilities provide new possibilities for in-house and user programmes and opens up additional synergies within the Swiss research landscape.
