About

The Quantum Physics for Advanced Materials Engineering programme of the National University of Science and Technology is devoted to the study of macroscopic quantum phenomena discovered in nano-structured materials and quantum devices created during the last 20-30 years in the search for components for quantum electronics. 

Overview

At the same time, the Quantum Physics for Advanced Materials Engineering programme of the National University of Science and Technology addresses the basic physical principles of correlated electron systems and devices of quantum electronics, as well as some important manufacturing techniques and measurements of physical and chemical characteristics of quantum-sized structures and materials.

Complementing the foundational coursework will be independent research projects and elective courses focusing on new materials and modern quantum devices. The list of new materials studied in the course of the program includes:

  • graphene and carbon nanotubes
  • quantum magnets — atomic spin chain
  • magnetic semiconductors — silicon doped with manganese
  • semiconductor materials based on solid solutions of germanium in silicon
  • disordered media and fractal structures — aerogels, granular conductors
  • heavy fermionic metals, the Kondo semiconductors
  • quasicrystals and structurally complex thermionic materials based on bismuth telluride
  • lipid and bolalipid membranes

Learning Outcomes

Courses in experimental research methods introduce students to different promising materials used as a basis in quantum electronics as well as to various measurement methods, including:

  • spectroscopy
  • tunneling microscopy
  • scanning ion microscopy
  • the accuracy, sensitivity, locality, and applicability of different measurement methods for the study of nanomaterials

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Modern Quantum Physics of Solids
  • Electron Theory of Metals
  • Technologies and Materials of Quantum Electronics
  • Spectroscopic Methods for Analysis of Materials
  • Quantum Electronic Properties of Nanosystems
  • Physics of Liquid-Crystal Membranes
