University College Cork (UCC) has appointed Professor Séamus Davis to spearhead a pioneering research programme to study Quantum Materials for Quantum Technology, in a joint appointment with the University of Oxford. At UCC, Prof. Davis plans to specifically engage with researchers at various SFI Research Centres including the Irish Photonics Integration Centre (IPIC), which is hosted at Tyndall.
The Davis led Research Programme
The Davis led research programme focuses on direct, atomic-scale visualization of electronic states in quantum materials, and requires a highly specialized ultra-low-vibration (ULV) laboratory environment. For Ireland, Prof. Davis’ programme will enhance the growing reputation in Ireland for quantum materials and quantum technology research. Moreover, establishing a flourishing joint research programme at UCC and Oxford will enhance the training and experience of the early-career researchers involved. In addition, Prof. Davis’ Programme will have a significant impact on European research excellence.
The appointment of Professor Davis is supported in Ireland through a Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) Research Professorship and an SFI Infrastructure Award, and in the UK via a European Research Council Advanced Grant Award.
