Researchers in the Department of Quantum Matter Physics are developing, synthesizing, studying and predicting the quantum materials of the future. Using a broad range of experimental and theoretical approaches, they are advancing the understanding of quantum matter, and creating novel electronic devices.
DQMP focuses on innovative materials, in particular high-temperature superconductors, monoatomic layers and multilayers, magnetic materials, thermoelectrics, multiferroics, ceramic insulators, nanomaterials, ferroelectrics, piezoelectrics, carbon structures (fullerenes, nanotubes, graphene), intermetallics, organic metals, as well as materials for renewable energy and sustainable development, and many more, such as artificial solids studied in cold atomic gases. The DQMP contributes to the Geneva Quantum Centre.

Geneva Quantum Centre
The Geneva Quantum Centre brings together diverse actors and activities at the University of Geneva covering a wide range of topics in quantum science and technologies. The GQC spans theory to experiment as well as fundamental to applied research, creating an exciting environment driven by world-leading researchers.
MaNEP Switzerland Network
MaNEP Switzerland is a network federating scientists, researchers and students working in Swiss universities, institutes of technology, engineering high schools or industry, and interested in novel quantum matter and devices. It is an interactive platform for network members and a gateway for industrial partnerships. Our main goal is to reinforce research on the physics of quantum matter and devices at a national scale by organizing regular events, strengthening ties among scientists and students and promoting our research to industry, political stakeholders and the general public.
