OUR EVENTS

  • RQÉMP Summer School

    14 August - 16 August

OUR AXES OF RESEARCH

Our research program is divided into five-axis:

EMERGENT QUANTUM PHENOMENA

Superconductors, quantum spins and topological materials are all materials often presenting unexpected behaviours and making possible the emergence of a wide variety of revolutionary technologies: processing and transport of quantum information, magnetic sensors, low dissipation devices.

TARGETED DESIGN OF NEW MATERIALS

In this research axis, the theory is at the service of practice. Simulation and modelling methods are developed before synthesis to predict the mechanical, optical, dielectric, and magnetic properties of materials.

ATOMS UP : NANO AND BIO-INSPIRED MATERIALS

At the scale of a few atoms, the properties of materials change fundamentally allowing the exploitation of extraordinary properties. At the edge of physics, chemistry, engineering and biology, small materials are manufactured, measured and modelled.

MATERIALS ENGINEERING FOR NEW TECHNOLOGIES

RQMP members develop optical, photonic, micro- and optoelectronic materials for telecommunications, aerospace, energy, manufacturing, and the pharmaceutical or biomedical domains.

LIGHT-MATTER INTERACTIONS

One of the main tools for understanding matter’s inner workings is its interaction with light. That makes it possible to control materials properties at various levels, even up to the production of new quantum states.
