  • The Gruber Center for Quantum Electronics

    Director: 
    Prof. Eli Zeldov

    The Gruber Center for Quantum Electronics supports research on the behavior of electrons in matter. The study of quantum electronics is enabling the miniaturization of technology and the development of the transistors and integrated circuits of tomorrow. As the size of devices shrinks and reaches the nanometer scale, the effects of quantum mechanics on electrons becomes more pronounced and, eventually, determines their electronic properties.

  • The Joseph H. and Belle R. Braun Center for Submicron Research

    Director: 
    Prof. Eli Zeldov

    The Joseph H. and Belle R. Braun Center for Submicron Research explores the miniaturization of electronic devices. Scientists pursue the design, material growth, fabrication, and characterization of submicron semiconductors, which are essential for a new type of quantum electronics which is leading to the development of smaller and faster computer chips for tomorrow’s advanced electronics industry.

  • The Maurice and Gabriela Goldschleger Center for Nanophysics

    Director: 
    Prof. Yuval Oreg

    The Maurice and Gabriela Goldschleger Center for Nanophysics advances theoretical and experimental research in nanophysics and is fueled by the success of the research on mesoscopic physics, a sub-discipline of condensed matter physics that deals with materials of an intermediate length scale. The scale of such materials can be described as being between the size of a quantity of atoms, such as a molecule, and of materials measuring microns.
