Abstract: The 5-year renewal plans for the STC for Integrated Quantum Materials will be presented. Our vision is to use quantum materials to enable quantum sensors, quantum communication, and quantum computing.  Center faculty at Harvard, Howard University, and MIT will pursue four Research Areas:  Van der Waals Heterostructures, led by Philip Kim (Harvard), Discovery of New Topological Crystals, led by Joe Checkelsky (MIT), Topologically Protected Qubits, led by Amir Yacoby (Harvard) and Pablo Jarillo-Herrero (MIT), and Quantum Networks with Engineered Solid State Quantum Emitters, led by Marko Loncar (Harvard).
