Mission of the network

The mission of the Brazilian Network on Quantum Materials is integrate, in an articulated way, experimental and theoretical researchers with a high degree of specialization in the synthesis and macroscopic and microscopic characterization of advanced quantum materials using experiments and theoretical data modeling of electrical resistivity, Hall effect, magnetization, dc/ac magnetic susceptibility, specific heat, thermal expansion, magnetoimpedance, torquimetry, electron spin (ESR), nuclear (NMR) and quadrupole (NQR) resonances, Raman scattering, X-ray diffraction (powder and magnetic), absorption X-rays (XANES, EXAFS, XMCD), elemental analysis (EDS and WDS), Angle-Resolved Photoemission Spectroscopy (ARPES), Resonant Inelastic X-ray Scattering (RIXS) and Mossbauer spectroscopy. The complete microscopic understanding of such emergent phenomena in these materials is crucial to leverage scientific and technological development in several strategic areas that involve condensed matter, such as: development of new materials, nanoparticles and devices, medicinal use of nanostructures, improvement of the energy efficiency of materials, generation of high magnetic fields for accelerators and tomographs, quantum computing, optical devices, electronic devices, spintronics, telecommunication, etc.

This netowrk is part of the international ICAM Quantum Materials accelnet and is aimed to facilitate exchanges in Quantum Materials between Brazil and the USA as part of the NSF Accelnet program.
