In this talk, Gufei Zhang will present the research on quantum materials recently carried out in his group (QURE – nanostructured materials in the Quantum REgime) affiliated with Mads Clausen Institute and Danish Institute for Advanced Study.

Confronted with the desires of technological and economic sustainability, traditional devices based on conventional materials and rooted in classical physics concepts are reaching their upper limits, and quantum materials are called to open a new era. The ongoing revolution is centered on exploring quantum phenomena for the development of brand new electronic, magnetoelectronic, spintronic, and optical systems to realize superior performances of robust miniaturized devices for massive data storage, faster data processing and safer data transfer with low dissipation.

At the QURE group, the research efforts are devoted to unveiling and developing the electronic and magnetoelectronic properties of materials in the quantum regime.

In this lecture, Gufei Zhang will show his research results recently obtained on two intriguing quantum materials, i.e., ferromagnetic superconducting nanodiamond films with long-range coherent magnetic bound states [1,2] and a quasi-one-dimensional superconductor composed of amorphous atomic chains [3].
