The study of quantum materials and quantum devices is an exciting, interdisciplinary frontier that leverages condensed matter theory, atomic, molecular, and optical theory, the theory of open quantum systems, and quantum information theory to explore new phases of matter, new quantum circuits, and the interactions of qubits with their environment. Research at Princeton spans fundamental physical phenomena and applied device theory, and the collaborative environment enables radically new opportunities in quantum materials and devices.
