Quantum materials have unusual thermal, magnetic, and electrical properties. The ability to understand and engineer these materials and control their properties could virtually revolutionize every aspect of society and economy. It will enable new sustainable quantum technologies ranging from quantum information processing, quantum sensors to novel approaches for resolving healthcare needs.
