Theory of Quantum Matter Unit at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University
An inside look at the work of the OIST team advancing new theoretical approaches to quantum matter and seeking to guide the discovery of new quantum phases. Their research environment – unique in Japan – blends high-trust funding for basic research, a distinctive setting and mission, and a global community of scientists. Theoretical physicists at OIST are working with experimental physicists and chemists to understand new quantum materials. The Theory of Quantum Matter Unit is also harnessing the power of machine learning, using computers more swiftly and effectively to address highly complex problems in theoretical physics.
