The ERC Synergy Grant research project Frontiers in Quantum Materials’ Control (Q-MAC) started in October, 2013. After being granted a 1-year extension on the grounds of scientific excellence, the project was finalized in March, 2021.


The four collaborating research teams are located at the University of Geneva and the University of Oxford as well as the École Polytechnique near Paris and the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg.


During the last 7 years, a combination of material design, quantum optics theory, as well as ultrafast laser and x-ray physics was used to realize ultrahigh temperature superconductivity. For this project, the scientists were awarded about 10 million Euros by the European Research Council.
