IRG 1 is engineering unprecedented physical properties into inorganic nanostructures by controlling defect formation and doping, and will exploit emergent properties to forge new technological frontiers ranging from laser cooling . . .

IRG 2 is creating and studying new forms of quantum matter in atomically layered materials and controlling novel topological and excitonic phase transitions within these materials, with potentially disruptive impact . . .

In addition to IRG research MEM·C also funds competitive exploratory and multidisciplinary team research. View MEM-Seed awards
