Quantum materials and devices are an emerging field in materials engineering and physics which offer new approaches to electronics and photonics. This course serves as an introduction to quantum materials and their applications in quantum technologies. It will teach concepts needed to understand the quantum mechanical properties of materials and connect their fundamental properties to quantum device applications. Topics will include low-dimensional materials, strongly correlated electron systems, topology in solids, and light-matter interactions
