QMI Researchers Have Successfully Grown a Parent Compound in a "Quantum Sandwich"
A group of researchers at Stewart Blusson QMI at the University of British Columbia have successfully grown the parent compound of a high superconducting transition temperature material (perovskite bismuthate). Strontium bismuth oxide (SrBiO3) was grown in a thin film form on a strontium titanate substrate using molecular beam epitaxy (MBE). Experimental results were recently reported in Physical Review Materials. Read more.

CANCELED: Chaos Dynamics and Thermalization in Interacting Quantum Systems Workshop
We regret to inform you that the workshop "Chaos Dynamics and Thermalization in Interacting Quantum Systems" planned for May 7-9, 2020 in Vancouver has been *canceled* due to the threat posed by the global pandemic. We are hoping to possibly run a similar event at a future date once the situation is back to normal, please stay tuned.
