The physics of quantum materials is one of the hallmarks of the CNRS Institute of Physics, which is part of several priority thematic orientations of the CNRS Contract of Objectives and Performance 2019-2023 (2.1.8 Quantum matter, information and technologies;2.2.5 Non-equilibrium phenomena and under extreme conditions;2.2.6 Multi-scale interactions, complex systems, topological matter). This theme is supported by a very active and internationally recognized community, and structured for example within CNRS Thematic Networks such as MEETICC (materials, electronic states, interactions and non-conventional couplings) and HOWDI (Van der Waals heterostructures of low dimensional materials) without being exhaustive. The exploration of these materials - intrinsically complex - requires innovative experiments in laboratories and/or at large research infrastructures and more and more advanced theoretical developments, in a very competitive international context. Supporting this field by attracting talents proposing research beyond the state of the art has the dual objective of advancing knowledge, the primary mission of the CNRS, but also to participate in the medium and long term scientific resourcing of priority programs at the national level such as the PEPR Quantum. Revealing new quantum properties and/or bringing out quantum materials with novel functionalities are sources of new application concepts for several pillars of quantum technologies. The impact of quantum materials is not limited to information technologies, but also concerns energy in a context of sobriety.
Stratégie du laboratoire d'accueil
The four host laboratories approached to host the CPJ have internationally recognized activities in quantum materials. Each laboratory has certain specificities on which the candidates will be able to build their research program.
The Néel Institute - UPR2940 has a strong expertise in materials synthesis, physics at very low temperatures and extreme conditions, in particular in connection with large research infrastructures.
The IPCMS - UMR7504 is well known for its expertise in the field of optical spectroscopy applied to a wide range of materials. It hosts the platform resulting from the EquipEx UNION.
The LNCMI - UPR3228 develops unique experimental devices allowing studies under extreme conditions, in particular under intense static or pulsed magnetic fields.
The LPS - UMR8502 develops specific experiments to study quantum materials under external stimuli, and in particular ultrafast dynamics by pump-probe techniques. The laboratory also has a strong link with several large research infrastructures.
Quantum materials and more generally quantum sciences are at the heart of many international collaborations of the CNRS Institute of Physics. Beyond bilateral actions between researchers, we can mention structuring projects such as the International Research Project "SupraDevMat" associating the Néel Institute and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany, as well as the International Research Laboratory "Quantum Frontiers", one of the research axes of which concerns quantum materials, associating the University of Sherbrooke in Canada and several potential host laboratories of this CPJ.

Résumé du projet scientifique
Quantum materials are the meeting point of several strong communities at the Institute of Physics and their exploration is intended to prepare the future of quantum technologies. One of the challenges is to better understand, control and exploit the electronic interactions and quantum fluctuations to design materials with new functionalities. This CPJ aims to support this research area, and in particular to explore the excitations and/or non-equilibrium properties of quantum materials by relying on innovative experiments, or experiments performed under extreme conditions, or exploiting external stimuli to probe the dynamics of excited states of these materials at ultra-short times. Candidates should propose a research project on quantum materials that fits within one of the four host laboratories: the Néel Institute in Grenoble, the Institute of Physics and Chemistry of Materials in Strasbourg, the National Laboratory of Intense Magnetic Fields in Grenoble and Toulouse, the Solid State Physics Laboratory in Orsay. Research projects associating one of these laboratories with the "Quantum Materials" axis of the International Research Laboratory "Quantum Frontiers" in Sherbrooke, Canada are encouraged.
Résumé du projet d'enseignement
A teaching project linked to the "quantum materials" theme will be discussed with the university or engineering school supervising the host laboratory of the CPJ.

The dissemination of the results will be done through world-class scientific productions: publications, patents, software... In addition, the results will be communicated to various targets such as scientific communities, media, decision makers, general public, schools, etc., with an adapted calendar. Specific tools may be developed such as websites, newsletters, meetings, international symposia, summer schools and conferences.
The CNRS is developing a strong policy in favor of open science. Open science consists of making research results "as accessible as possible and closed as necessary". As such, the CNRS aims to make 100% of the texts of publications resulting from the work of its laboratories accessible , in particular through deposit in HAL. The data produced must also be made available and reusable, except for specific restrictions. In addition, the guiding principles of individual evaluation have been revised in accordance with the DORA declaration, to be more qualitative and to take into account all facets of the researcher's profession.
Science et société
The relationship between science and society is now recognized as a full dimension of scientific activity. The project will develop this dimension in synergy with all the partners. The resulting research work will contribute to informing public decision-making. Participatory science initiatives may be initiated with actors from the project’s socio-economic and cultural eco-system .
The activity will be evaluated in particular on the basis of scientific production (publications, software, patents, etc.), on institutional and private partnerships formalized by contracts, on international presence, on the promotion of work to multidisciplinary scientific communities, on innovation and its transfer to society and on scientific dissemination to non-specialist audiences.
