Our vision is to trigger a revolution in low-power information and communication technologies in an energy-efficient society.

QuSpin´s objective is to develop the basic science that uses quantum entities such as the electron spin as information carriers in radically different ways. We aim at groundbreaking basic research that is crucial to the  development of fast, high-capacity, material systems and tools for smaller and more power-efficient electronic devices.

Researcher Alireza Qaiumzadeh has received the GRIEG Grant by the Polish National Science Centre, together with researcher Anna Dyrdał from Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań (AMU). The title of the project is "Spin and charge transport in low-dimensional novel quantum materials" (PDF).

The three-year grant budget is about Euro 1.365 million, and funds the hiring a PhD candidate in NTNU and three PhD candidates and two postdoctoral fellows in AMU. The GRIEG call is part of the Basic Research Programme operated by the Polish National Science Centre under the EEA and Norway Grants.

International Seminar Series online on zoom

We are launching our international seminar serie online on zoom, starting May 18th!

We have invited key speakers to give a 45 minutes presentation with a 15 minutes follow-up dialogue and questions. The participation is by invitation.
