Welcome to
Quantum Materials Lab

Quantum materials are manifestations of the quantum mechanical effects. The phrase  'quantum materials' covers several emerging condensed matter materials like the strongly correlated systems, topological systems, quantum spin liquids, high-Tc superconductors,  and so forth. Most importantly, in recent days, quantum materials gained enormous research interests from both the fundamental aspects and the complex technological designs for their futuristic applications such as quantum computations.  The exotic physics of these materials stems mainly from the interplay among various quantum mechanical effects, charge and spin excitations, orbital fluctuations, topological properties of the electronic band structure, and etc.

Currently, our group focuses on the topological properties of Dirac and Weyl semimetals, Transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDC), Quantum spin liquids (QSL), and Two-dimensional (2D) magnetic materials. We grow high-quality single crystals and study their physical  & electronic properties to understand the physics of these materials and find their suitability for quantum computations as quantum computers are made merely by materials !!!
