During the summer of 2017, PCCM hosted 22 REU students from 10 different states/territories (from Puerto Rico to California). The students worked over the course of 9 weeks, focusing on a wide range of materials science topics such as ultra-fast laser pulses, superconducting qubits, thin films and batteries.

Researchers have discovered how to identify new examples of topological materials, which have unique and desirable electronic properties. The technique involves finding the connection between band theory, which describes the energy levels of electrons in a solid, with a material’s topological nature. The disconnected bands indicate the material...
