Within the duration of this Ambizione grant period, we will investigate a class of compounds with great potential for exotic physical phenomena, and for future technological innovations. The major aim of this research is to improve the understanding of the relationships between chemical bonding and the electronic properties of solids. This research therefore targets the discovery and understanding of novel quantum materials that exhibit extraordinary physical properties. To this end, we synthesize new materials, grow high-quality single crystals, and perform complex measurements of fundamental physical properties. This combination of chemical synthesis and physical properties measurements is one of the great strengths in this line of research, because it allows for immediate feedback loops and henceforth fast improvements of the materials. The ultimate goal, of this line of research is the discovery of a room-temperature superconductor. Such a discovery would revolutionize energy production, storage, and transport. It would also have an unparalleled impact on electronics and future devices.
