Center for Quantum Spintronics (QuSpin)

Quantum Physics Illustration

In September 2017 QuSpin received status as a Center of Excellence, funded by the Research Council of Norway and NTNU. The Research Council awarded ten research groups across all fields of science and humanities status as Centres of Excellence (SFF centres). The ten new centres will receive a total of NOK 1.5 billion over a ten-year period to carry out world-class research.

The principal goal of the center is to describe, characterize and develop recently identified quantum approaches to  control electric signals in advanced nanoelectronics, conceptually different from those existing today. Our vision is to trigger a revolution in low-power information and communication technologies in an energy-efficient society.


We are continuously looking for outstanding PhD and postdoc/researcher candidates to join us at QuSpin. We hire all year around. Skilled and motivated candidates are encouraged to contact us.
