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 to solar concentration.

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 on energy and information technologies.

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