We design and study new materials with novel physical properties.

taufourfurnaceOur goal is to elucidate the physical interactions that are responsible for unconventional properties of new materials.

We grow crystals of new materials, often in the form of high quality single crystals. After creating new materials, we tune them to study how to control and improve their physical properties. The tuning parameters can be chemical substitutions, high-magnetic field and/or high-pressure.

Work in the laboratory is very diverse: from high temperature furnaces to millikelvin cryostats, from the big bolt cutter to the thin wire saw, from the blow torch to data analysis and machine learning… We design, grow and characterize the quantum and energy materials that will enable the next generation of technologies.
