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.
