Exploring New Quantum Materials with Chemistry

Abstract: Quantum materials, as an emerging term, include materials with electronic or magnetic properties originating from nontrivial quantum mechanics, such as superconductors, topological materials, quantum spin liquids etc. Such materials are attractive not only due to their exotic quantum physics, but also vast potential applications and corresponding economic benefits. Thus, it is necessary for the communities of solid-state chemistry, condensed matter physics and materials science to explore novel quantum materials and connect them with real-life applications. In this talk, I will cover our past efforts about design and synthesis of new quantum materials by integrating the desired physical properties with chemical intuitions, such as crystal structure and chemical bonding.
