EPiQS Funding to Boost Quantum Materials Theory Research

March 10, 2014

Harvard has been chosen one of the six recipients of Gordon and Betty Mooore Foundation's Emergent Phenomena in Quantum Systems (EPiQS) grants.

A major objective of EPiQS is to provide funding that enables a community of top experimentalists and theorists to maximize their potential to explore, discover and understand emergent behavior of complex quantum matter. EPiQS support for theoretical research in quantum materials focuses on establishing Moore Postdoctoral and Visiting Scholars programs, in the hope of:


2014 Oliver E. Buckley Condensed Matter Prize

February 7, 2014


This year's Oliver E. Buckley Condensed Matter Prize has been awarded to Prof. Philip Kim "for his discoveries of unconventional electronic properties of graphene".

The prize was endowed in 1952 by AT&T Bell Laboratories (now Bell Laboratories, Alcatel-Lucent) and is currently co-sponsored with the HTC-VIA Group, as a means of recognizing outstanding theoretical or experimental contributions to condensed matter physics.
