  • Introduction

    This special issue on trends in quantum materials synthesis and applications brings together current research from scientists working on a variety of problems at the frontiers of materials physics, quantum materials and engineering. The properties of quantum materials systems are uniquely defined by quantum mechanical effects that remain manifest at high temperatures and/or macroscopic length scales, often accompanied by new emergent properties. Such phenomena often involve strongly correlated electron interactions which exhibit exotic electronic and magnetic properties as observed in iron-based superconductors, colossal magnetoresistance, heavy fermions, topological insulators, spin-charge ordering systems etc. The ability to directly synthesize materials with these incredible properties leading to the next-generation of quantum devices requires a new approach in crystal growth/fabrication methods including developing computational tools and understanding of quantum materials in addition to full capability to control complex atomic- and subatomic-level interactions of magnetic and electrical properties so that new/artificial forms of matter that have specific, tailored properties can be realized. As such , advances in quantum materials research could revolutionize virtually every aspect of society and enable highly energy-efficient electrical systems and faster, more accurate electronic devices, magnetic field sensors, low-power memory modules, high-density storage devices, and quantum computers to name a few.
